I found this tool called valgrind (http://devel-home.kde.org/~sewardj/) a few
days ago and find it really interesting. It is something similair to purify
(memory use debugger one could call it I guess) but GPL'ed and developed by
the KDE team from what I can tell. I have been looking for this kind of tool
for a long time and haven't found one I really like yet.

As it is right now valgrind is x86&linux 2.4 specific (probably gcc specific
too..) but I would really love to see a FreeBSD port. It should be quite
possible to port the OS specific parts to handle FreeBSD systemcalls instead
of Linux ones. Is anyone already looking in to this or interested? It would be
a great tool to debug the base system with as well as your own applications.
