Could we include private/config.h from only private/gcconfig.h, and then include that, or gc_priv.h, in the places in which gc.h is being newly included, and possibly in any others it might be needed?  That way this stays out of client visible headers, which I think is the right thing?

Please hold this.  I seem to have broken a few things in the last
version of the patch.  The original patch is the only version which I
properly tested.  I'll have a better look at it.
