Squid and FreeBSD -lmalloc

   I'm wondering if there's a deep reason for having Squid link against
libmalloc undef FreeBSD of which I wasn't aware. We started running in
to what seems a fairly common problem of having squid use a really,
really large amount of memory (16mb allocated to object storage, it grows
to about 75 megs within a day and a half), so I upgraded the libc malloc
to phkmalloc and changed configure to _not_ link against libmalloc.

   I've noticed no problems so far, but it hasn't been running long
enough to see what the impact is on the memory usage.

   Has anyone else done this? And if so, did you meet with success? (If
not, I'll post a bit of a summary tomorrow after it's had time to run for
a time).
