installing the boehm gc on os x

When I installed libgc on mac, as you did, the files were installed to /usr/local/Cellar/bdw-gc/. Then, when it came time to compile my code I had to run:

$ LIBGC=/usr/local/Cellar/bdw-gc/VERSION/
$ gcc ... -I$LIBGC/include/ ... $LIBGC/lib/libgc.a other.a ...

When you install libgc, its not included in your system path. You need to explicitly add it.

Also in my code I used:

#include "gc.h"

And not <gc/gc.h>.
