Yes, unfortunately the BWDGC library is full of useful bits of code that
are rendered useless because in a default installation there are no headers
for them.

I believe this is due to the fact that his library has been in a "hidden"
or "proprietary" form by various components (gcc, gcc-java, bigloo, ecl,
...), embedded in the project, sometimes modifying the headers, etc. I hope
this will change in the future, because ECL needs some bits (typed memory
allocation and precise marking, etc) to perform better in multithreaded

I will review your patches and add them to the repo ASAP. Thanks again for
your contribution.
