+On OpenBSD, Perl will now default to using the system C<malloc> due to the
+security features it provides. Perl's own malloc wrapper has been in use
+since v5.14 due to performance reasons, but the OpenBSD project believes
+the tradeoff is worth it and would prefer that users who need the speed
+specifically ask for it.
