Thanks for this.

This one will have to wait for Paolo to get back.

How does this patch impact FreeBSD builders of the tarball?  I'm
assuming PTHREAD_CFLAGS and PTHREAD_LIBS won't be set automatically for
them.  Is it possible to have a set of probably-correct defaults, and
let the ports build override them?

These patches should be fed upstream to the libgc people, see
http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Hans_Boehm/gc for their site.  The
mailing list info is at the bottom of that page.  We update to new
versions of libgc fairly often.

ltmain is a generated file (from libtool.)

Again, Makefile.in is a generated file, built from Makefile.am.  There
is no tests directory specified in Makefile.am.
