[Mono-list] Bohem's GC problem

Thank you for your advice.

I don't know if I did it right but I had the problem resolved. It seems some
path issues: I installed Boehm's GC with default prefix=/usr/local. But the
installation script only copied libgc into /usr/local/lib. When Mono's
configure script test sockaddr_un.sun_path, it will use libgc in /usr/lib.
Also, Mono's script only accept GC's header files in /usr/include/gc. After
I copied all the libgc files into /usr/lib and all the GC's header files
into /usr/include/gc, this problem seems been solved.

BTW, I also added general link options LDFLAGS="$LDFLAGS -pthread" to the
configure script. Since when testing GC_malloc, it will use libgc, which
called some pthread functions.
