Following little function detects whether the internal fp memory manager is
This is obviously not thread safe.
Using Heaptrc doesn not affect the result.
In case the internal memory manager is not used, it doesn't tell which one
is used. Detecting that is much more difficult. Detecting that the c library
is loaded is not enough because another unit could have included it. If
there is debug info in the executable one could look up the addresses
returned by GetMemoryManager.
