Severe memory leaks make X.org unuseable

Earlier on freebsd 7.0 pmap back in Nov. was not available and would not compile right. But now it seems to have compiled on 7.1 and is working ok. It reports memory allocations but does not report line numbers. I am going to paste a dump of what it provides of the X.org process here. I have also looked into valgrind and dtrace but I cannot get those to work at all.
