Yes, Karthik saw no change on his Intel based system too.

Yes, this was a change to doc/sample_ports in the last year.
Fixed, tested, ... still leaks.  Statistics output works now as well.

Yes, I have one.  I agree.  Feel free to change the code if you get a
moment.  Note that the installation scripts "touch $LIBDIR/.nocount"

I've looked at an strace.  I need to make an ltrace next.  The strace
suggests an issue with /etc/nsswitch.conf line that I recall as a known
issue with Red Hat Linux V6.2 ... "hosts:      files nisplus nis dns"

If Bob isn't using NIS I'll ask him to remove that.
