Yes. libatomic_ops is a standalone library. For simplicity, final gc7.2 release will include libatomic_ops but not the future releases (I think).
As a sample, I could refer to GCC - it does not include but requires GMP, MPFR, and MPC (you should either install these packs or specify paths to them).

As for the repository, it is not possible setup a link in a project to another project, but you could do it in a Git working working directory.

Great! We've just talked with Hans about build-bots recently.
Note that besides creating a symlink to libatomic_ops inside bdwgc, autoreconf -vif should be called before configure now (as we excluded these auto-generated stuff from the repo but not from the tar-ball).

Also, it would be a plus, to run "make check" for libatomic_ops itself.
