Bug Description

Current versions of teh BDW-GC in ubuntu are based on vresion 6.8, which is more than three years old. Note that version 7.0 came out on 02-Jul-2007 and version 7.1 on 03-May-2008

I need the pkg-config file "bdw-gc.pc" from these versions, because other systems that use ./configure (autoconf/automake) expect to find this file (in /usr/lib/pkgconfig)

Note that this bug affects all versions of ubuntu -- from at least hardy up to karmic and lucid

The boehm GC is downloadable from

  * add hppa symbol file

Changed in libgc (Ubuntu):
