I finally tracked this down, it had me stumped. There was some leftover 
code in a Makefile that was building a standalone module load 
tester...and of course the module load tester (which aids checking 
loadable modules without bringing down the server if there is a problem) 
did not have palloc implemented. Once I removed the old Makefile lines, 
it worked.
