That's still the plan.
However the intent is to have the libatomic_ops subdirectory in the bdwgc distribution separately buildable, and to have the GC distribution continue to build against a separate libatomic_ops if available. Thus hopefully the impact on distributions should be minimal.
I really only did this because it simplified the source tree maintenance issues for me.
