Hi Ian,

I fixed build problem with kfreebsd/i386: https://github.com/ivmai/libatomic_ops/commit/613f39d369045e8fc385a439f67a575cddcc6fa1 (push to master and to https://github.com/ivmai/libatomic_ops/tree/libatomic_ops-7_2-hotfix-1 - will go to v7.2d release including that of bdwgc)

I'll try to find the problem with test_malloc on kfreebsd/i386.

I can't access ppc and m68k platforms, so it would be good if someone else prepares the patches.

Regards,
Ivan
