There is no guarantee ggc_alloc_typed won't change for 4.7 or even
4.6. If you really want to pursue this, perhaps try checking for a
typed allocator of a well-known GCC data type:
#if defined (ggc_alloc_rtx_def)

But then again, it may become a function instead of macro in 4.7,
breaking the test.

I'd say, use a common ggc_alloc_cleared_meltobject_st which is made by
gengtype in 4.6+ and provide its suitable definition yourself for 4.5.
