I'd like to avoid conditional compilation as much as possible, in order to reduce the frequency of regressions that break compilation for an obscure combination of configuration options.  One way of minimizing the impact might be to detect the presence of sbrk(), create a stub replacement (with a not_implemented() body)  if it's missing, and force config_dss to false.
