libgc-6.4-1 has been added to Cygwin.
This is the initial release of libgc.
libgc is the Boehm-Demers-Weiser conservative garbage collector for
C/C++. Can be used as a garbage collecting replacement for C malloc
or C++ new.
As always, you should conduct an appropriate level of testing before
using any new product in your production environment.
