You mentioned two, but here are three. Could you elaborate? I'm
thinking of libgc, libgc-dev (API + .h + ...), but if that is too
complex to package easily I just package everything into libgc.
I'm not sure what files belong to these categories. Also I'm not sure
what files are static libraries (.a I assume), and import libraries
and runtime libraries.

Erm, I don't have any expertise on field of .dll, libtool or
generating libraries in general, so I wouldn't know what to look for.

I fetched newest 'gc' and applied the patch, thank you.
