Thanks for pointing me to this project. This looks really
promising and I would be glad for learning from that.

1) The pthread issue

As far as I can see, you have patched libgc to support pthreads
under MinGW. You forward-ported those patches from libgc-6.8 to 7.2,
so I'm wondering why those patches didn't make it into upstream
(i.e. the official libgc project) during that time. Are there any
issues with those patches that I should know about?

Also, have you actually offered these patches to upstream? If so,
what's the URL to their bug tracker, or mailing list archive, where
this issue has been discussed? I haven't been able to find any such
information in neither the *.py file not the patch files.

2) The struct_timespec / ipv6 / etc. issues

It seems that you solve those issues using an even uglier hack
than I did. I'm wondering why it is necessary to manipulate the
config.cache, as providing those variables as ./configure paramters
worked quite well for me.

Moreover, is this a sensible thing to do anyway? Shouldn't we try
to fix the configure.ac to make it more portable and to make it
properly detect those MinGW things in the first place?
