Hi Kai,

I found recent commit to gcc/boehmgc regarding DLL_EXPORT handling -

1. Could you please describe the purpose - AFAIK, GCC (at least Cygwin port) could create dll exporting functions even if they are not tagged with dllexport.
2. I tried to apply your patch (slightly modified - shown below) to recent GC and failed because -D DLL_EXPORT is specified only during compilation of libgc modules but not during compilation of tests causing "GC_print_stats undefined" error.

My alternative solution is to define GC_DLL if --enable-shared with --disable-static.
See commit https://github.com/ivmai/bdwgc/commit/505b041e15e243e0f33540363ac40797e2bff4f4


PS. The patch that failed for the recent BDWGC:
