[Bug-wget] Broken 'DEBUG_MALLOC' code

Hi list.

Nice to know that Wget is still being developed. I used to contribute quite
a bit when Hrvoje Niksic was the chief. But IMHO it's a pity gnulib is used now.
This excludes a lot of Wget targets. Like djgpp, MSVC and Watcom I once
patched for. It was easy to build gnulib using MingW. But Iæm not sure other
non-gcc compilers would be that easy.

Anyway, to the point. I tried my old MingW makefile on the latest git-repo. It
stumbled on some code inside 'DEBUG_MALLOC'. Here in init.c (line 1737):

   for (i = 0; i < nurl; i++)
     xfree (url[i]);

Should 'nurl' and 'url' in main.c be made public?

There are some other Windows issues which I can come back to.

 I'm resending this once again. I tried yesterday. Still no receipt or copy of
 my own message from MailMan. I really am subscribed. Seems MailMan is
 overworked or broken.
