After adding ports gdb as a RUN_DEPENDS so that it gets installed in the
poudriere jail that I was using for debugging, I can confirm that this
is exactly what is happening.  All of the calls to the rtld version of
malloc() happened before main() was entered.  Starting slightly before
the start of main() and continuing until the eventual SIGBUS, all of the
malloc() calls were to the version in libc.
