The problem is I don't get any stack. I've traced down the problem in the gc7a 
somewhere in alloc.c:GC_try_to_collect_inner() which is called by GC_INIT().
The gctest just exits with an error, no log and no stack trace.
When calling gctest with GC_PRINT_STATS=1 I get as far as:

Increasing heap size by 65536 after 0 allocated bytes
Initiating full world-stop collection 1 after 0 allocd bytes
--> Marking for collection 1 after 0 allocd bytes

but GC_INIT never returns.
