Description Rebecca Cran freebsd_committer 2018-05-05 15:18:01 UTC
make.conf(5) contains the following statement about MALLOC_PRODUCTION:

     MALLOC_PRODUCTION
                   (bool) Set this to disable assertions and statistics
                   gathering in malloc(3).  It also defaults the A and J
                   runtime options to off.  Disabled by default on -CURRENT.

I believe the A and J options were from the old malloc implementation (phkmalloc?), while FreeBSD has used jemalloc for many years, which uses a different set of options.
