  Fedora 16 has 7.2alpha, and same for Fedora 17 beta, so it will
have all symbols exported there (ecl works), but rawhide was
update to 7.2 release 14 May.

  Ok. The commit in master adds the GC_push* required by ecl.
It should be ok to make a "request for enhancement" in Fedora
rawhide to update to gc-7.3alpha if the commit to master is good.
