pretty much anything that can be used on a UNIX can be used on linux, provided you have the source code. if dbx and purify are open source, then they most likely will work on linux.
just offhand tho, i know that there's a package on unix called 'lint' that checks for memory leaks. i think the linux variant is called 'lclint'.
