note that G_free() isn't anything special, it just does:

 * \brief Free allocated memory.
 * \param[in,out] buf buffer holding original data

void G_free(void *buf)

most of the G_malloc() stuff justs adds bounds checking and
prepares error messages; there are no #ifdefs in lib/gis/alloc.c
for Windows. I can't say that won't change in the future, but
for now...
