boehm-gc troubles with 2.0.10 on NetBSD/i386

I've been a guile user erratically for a long time, and maintain the
entry for guile in pkgsrc.  Currently that's at 1.8.8 and it works fine.

There's a draft package for guile 2.  boehm-gc in pkgsrc on NetBSD is
built without threads, and I have --disable-threads passed to guile's

The build goes ok until trying to run guild.  Just starting it without
args leads to:

/usr/pkgsrc/wip/guile2/work/guile-2.0.10/libguile > ../meta/uninstalled-env 
0xbbbe12d4 is not a GC visible pointer location
GC_is_visible test failed
Abort trap (core dumped)

Trying with gdb:

Starting program:

#10 0xbbb0ab67 in scm_boot_guile () from .libs/
#11 0x08048ce9 in main ()

When I run the included tests on boehm-gc 7.2e, they all past.

So I wonder if you think this is a boehm-gc issue, or something odd that
guile is doing to boehm-gc.  Any hints would be appreciated.
