grep complains "grep: Memory exhaused" if /etc/malloc.conf contains V.

$ make package
===>  Found saved configuration for openvpn-2.0.6_1
===>  Extracting for openvpn-2.0.6_1
grep: Memory exhausted
=> No MD5 checksum recorded for openvpn-2.0.6.tar.gz.
grep: Memory exhausted
=> No SHA256 checksum recorded for openvpn-2.0.6.tar.gz.

This problem goes away if the V is removed from /etc/malloc.conf.

ln -sf 'AVj' /etc/malloc.conf
cd /usr/ports/security/openvpn
make package
