That were my thoughts (and I said the word "temp" to Kai Tietz) expressed in

In particular, I've suggested to always define GC_BUILD in c/h files (gc_priv.h, gc_pmark.h and guarded with ifndef, so not to bother with GC_BUILD in scripts. I'll submit the patch for it a bit later (just not to grow the unprocessed queue).

This would be backward compatible so the current patch (for gcc boehm-gc) is anyway ok.
