Here are the debian packages depending on libgc, if you need testing stuff.
Bigloo is among them.

Description: Bootstrap-only compiler kit for a subset of Java(tm)
 BOCK is a prototype native compiler, originally intended to enable
 a Java(tm) development environment to be bootstrapped from a C-only
 environment.  It was envisioned that its sole purpose in life would be
 to compile the forthcoming "Jackal" Java compiler.
 BOCK has, since then, gained functionality, and should soon be able
 to compile most non-graphical Java programs.  Its lack of anything
 resembling error checking means that it won't be of much use for
 development, but it might be able to generate a reasonably fast binary
 version of your program.
 That said, BOCK is still very much in the pre-alpha testing stage.
 It is therefore unlikely to be of use to anyone except dedicated hackers
 and developers.
 Also included is "jcomp", a slightly more friendly front-end for bock,
 which compiles programs against the BOCK mini-library and compiles
 BOCK's C output to native code in one step.

 Among the features of CHPP are
  - CHPP is non-intrusive, i.e. you can take already existing text and
    just pipe it through CHPP and it is likely it won't change.
  - User-defined macros, which can be recursive
  - Complex data structures (lists and hashes)
  - Powerful looping constructs
  - Regular expression matching
  - Support for CGI scripting
  - An interface to SQL-Servers (at the moment mSQL and MySQL).

Description: Optimizing Oberon-2 to ANSI-C Compiler
 Oberon-2 is an object-oriented programming language, a successor of
 Pascal, designed by the renowned Niklaus Wirth. It combines the popular
 and proven design of Pascal (strict type system, easy to read code,
 easy to follow program flow, possibility to naturally structure your
 source code) with the modularity of Modula-2 and enhances both of them
 with clean, simple but powerful object-oriented concepts, including
 inheritance, dynamic type information, virtual methods, various access
 rules on class and module basis and a built-in garbage collector.
 OO2C is the first compiler of the Optimizing Oberon-2 Compiler (OOC)
 project.  OOC's goal is to provide optimizing native code Oberon-2
 compilers for a number of popular computer architectures.  This version
 is limited to 32-bit platforms.

Package: stalin
Priority: optional
Section: devel
Installed-Size: 3638

MD5sum: c438ca9ef94c23d46e683a4c531497f3
Description: An extremely aggressive Scheme compiler.
 Stalin is an aggressive self-hosting Scheme compiler.  It is designed
 to generate extremely efficient stand-alone executables in terms of
 both computational performance and resource consumption.  Stalin is a
 batch mode compiler like gcc, not an interpreter.  It is designed to
 be used after your code has stabilized to dramatically improve code
 In exchange for substantial performance increases, Stalin places a
 few limitations on the content of the source code.  The chief
 limitation is that you may not not LOAD or EVAL new expressions or
 procedure definitions within a running program.  This restriction
 allows Stalin to perform various sophisticated global analyses.
 These analyses include soft, static type analysis which allows it,
 when appropriate, and without any type declarations in the source, to
 map Scheme types directly to native C types, and use native
 arithmetic operations on a per expression basis.  This analysis also
 allows Stalin to reduce, or often eliminate, run-time type checking
 and dispatching.  Stalin also does careful lifetime analysis for all
 allocated data.  This allows Stalin to completely eliminate garbage
 collection for data with limited scope or accessibility.
 Stalin also performs a careful reachability analysis to eliminate any
 items from the output that are inaccessible.
 Stalin has a foreign procedure interface to both Xlib and OpenGL.
