#openbsd's #malloc stores meta-data separated from the memory returned to the caller, making it harder to use heap overflows to achieve code injection and execution. See e.g. mathyvanhoef.com/2013/02/under … and references. Having malloc meta-data near program data is dangerous!

Man, whoever wrote the Arduino Makefile really didn't know what they were doing.
