I am thinking about disabling the flag --enable-local-boehm entirely, 
because no distribution is installing the private headers. This is a 
little stupid, because these headers contain code which is useful to 
customize and optimize the way in which the garbage collector works. 
ECL, for instance, uses this to reduce the amount of memory that needs 
to be scanned for pointers, and to allow ECL to garbage collect 
dynamically loaded libraries. I do not know yet what a better solution 
would be. Suggestions are welcome.
