Providing a posix_memalign_free defeats the purpose - POSIX requires
that plain free() will cover the memory returned by posix_memalign.  The
list of platforms missing posix_memalign is a bit daunting:

MacOS X 10.5, FreeBSD 6.0, NetBSD 3.0, OpenBSD 3.8, Minix 3.1.8, AIX
5.1, HP-UX 11,
IRIX 6.5, OSF/1 5.1, Solaris 10, Cygwin 1.5.x, mingw, MSVC 9, Interix
3.5, BeOS.

Many of these systems have valloc(3) which could be used for this purpose.
