adding gc support to gcc (was Re: Self + GCC)

We did not exactly "run into problems" adding gc to gcc. It's not a trivial
thing to do, but we did it, and the stuff could be re-used in other systems.
What we did is described in our paper at SIGPLAN PLDI 1992.  We _did_ do it
only for a specific architecture, though it should not be all that hard to
port. Hope this helps ....					Eliot
