Heap configuration question

How is the heap size configured?
How is RTEMS_Malloc_Initialize used?

I went right to bringing up Tcl once everything was working OK.  It is 
crashing in an malloc() call while calling rtems_region_get_segment, 
eventually it gets an illegal instruction.  I'm assuming the heap is 
exhausted and I haven't configured it properly.  I can't find 
instructions for configuration.

I put a breakpoint in RTEMS_Malloc_Initialize, but that is never called.

Then I looked at "confdefs.h" where CONFIGURE_MALLOC_REGION is 
hardwired to 1, without a #ifdef wrapped around it.  Do I need to 
modify and rebuild RTEMS?
