I'm bootstrapping trunk now with #define GC_MCHECK (I add it directly
to gmalloc.c instead of going the configure route because it is easier
to turn it off later ;-)

If everything goes fine, I'll build a GC_MCHECK snapshot for Drew.

I would question how much that code has been used (for the bug in
GC_MCHECK code); as for the other, it surely has been giving us grief
for years, but not in a consistent enough way. Until now.
