Hi.  Yes, and the file HACKING contains some hints about this, and we
ship a valgrind suppressions file.  Use ./configure
--disable-valgrind-tests to disable valgrind.

However, valgrind should not be used unless requested, so that is a bug.
Does that always happen for you?  I've found that always using valgrind
when it is available causes too much problems: it is common for system
libraries have memory leaks, even libc.  So my opinion is that it should
only be on for people who requested it (or build from git).
