[Gc] Using libgc problems with VC++ 2003

following the previous discussion I decided to give it a try.

I downloaded gc6.8 and I am using vc++ 2003. My application needs to
work on windows and linux. So I first tried with windows.

Finding the recepie to build it was not trivial since it is not
explicitly described in the documentation. So I might have done
something wrong.

I first started with the DLL multithreaded version since my app is multi
threaded. I used the appropriate make file and started nmake from the vc
command line window. It all compiled without any problem.

I then created a project and used gctest as main program. It also
compiled and linked well. I had to put the dll in the system32
directory. But when I start the program it crashes. Apparentely even
before entering main call.

This is the stack trace where the program crashes.

244	C++
 	test-gc.exe!mainCRTStartup()  Line 259 + 0x19	C

I use the default project options and it is in debug mode. The gc
library is apparently not. Any suggestions ?
