I added a block allocator to newstr.c in order to speed allocations and
reduce internal fragmentation. It seemed to make about a 10% difference in
memory use for my test case.

One other thing I noted was that as build actions execute, bjam seems to
continue to chew through lots of memory, at least on NT. I'm not sure of
the cause. I think the filename of the temporary .bat file used by command
execution is definitely being leaked, but that should be insignificant,
even in a run with lots of build actions.
