besides the patch is not needed, the patch is incomplete. you still
link with the installed gc library. the other question is, if the
boehm-gc built for libgcj is suitable for libobjc.
see http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2003-02/msg01520.html and
http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2001-01/msg01019.html for further details.

ok i see now, didnt realise the extent of the problem. well feel free
to drop this bug to wishlist or to drop it entirely.. has the
build-depend for libgc-dev been checked? do you want me to check it?
