Hi, Reindl!

the mariadb build below is built without tokudb

Is it 10.2?


Ah, okay.

I've removed jemalloc dependency in 10.2.5, commit bf40e8069cd6952

i don't get why it is not used everywhere at all
trafficsevrer and dbmail are happy with it

And on FreeBSD it's the default system malloc.

But on Linux it's an extra dependency that not many users need.
(and those who do can use --malloc-lib switch). Some users even
wanted to use tcmalloc

that still don't explain why "-DWITH_JEMALLOC" should be only for TokuDB and why that can be not a configure option at all for the whole mariadb stuff
