Re: free in C++?

Probably, operator new/delete will in all likelyhood call malloc/free
eventually, but keep in mind that it's possible to overload these.

The manpage calls for _malloc_options. Note the leading underscore. Also,
since you're calling this from C++, you will need to explicitly tell
it to use C linkage. This is not a NetBSD issue, but a C-vs-C++ issue.
extern "C" char *_malloc_options;
char *_malloc_options = "X";
This works for me; at least "J" does what it's supposed to do.
