The headers are installed in a subdirectory gc, but since a lot of
client code still may still be using "#include <gc.h>", those
redirecting stubs are installed directly to the top-level of the include
directory.  (If we want to get rid of these file in the long run, we
could do it nicely by conditionally issuing a "#warning" directive for
those compilers which supports it for now.)
