Would you mind trying a default (non-PRODUCTION) build, but with junk
filling turned off?

adrian@adrian-hackbox:~ % ls -l /etc/malloc.conf

lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  10 Jun 24 04:37 /etc/malloc.conf -> junk:false

That fixes almost all of the malloc debug performance issues that I
see without having to recompile.

I'd like to know if you see any after that.
