I tried this on a clean tree with just the patch applied. I didn't get
the problem you're describing above. Can you check the patch applied

Can you run the failing command under script to get the build log?
For example:
$ script build.log make -j4 -C $SRCROOT MALLOC_PRODUCTION=yes buildworld
will do a buildworld and save the output to the file build.log
