I had a look at Portable .NET this week.  It appears they lifted boehm-gc
and libffi straight from GCC sources.  Interestingly, boehm-gc is
configured exactly as for libgcj, even with GC_GCJ_SUPPORT.

So it shouldn't be difficult to configure both runtimes so that they
can share the collector library.  I don't think installing gc.h really
helps with that, however.

I've moved back to Detroit since then.  Do you participate in TALUG?
