That's more than valgrind. Specifically, it includes solaris, which is
where we happen to run Purify most often (better results than win32).

While I agree that Rational was terrible to deal with, Purify is the
only option available to some users, and it seems like a bad idea to
remove something from the distribution while it provides benefit to
some people, while not affecting those who don't wish to use it.
