Bug Description

boehm-gc 7.4 introduced some API changes, for example GC_version is no longer exported, instead of it, there is function GC_get_version. Also some functions's prototypes have changed (for example GC_general_register_disappearing_link is now (void **, const void *), not (void **, void *).

First part seems to be fixed in current trunk, 2nd part is not.

I'm attaching suggested patch for this situation.

@JazzyNico - could you test the patch on Windows with current devlibs for any negative side-effects?
