Errm, well not exatly what you are looking for but I have written a
drop-in replacement for malloc() which does a mark-and-sweep GC for C. I
don't know whether I can release (probably not) it but I can probably
discuss how I went about it if you are interested ...
Oh, I also did a set of wrapper routines which used the same philosophy to
do the mark-and-sweep but which don't require that you replace malloc().
This is much easier but you only get to garbage-collect stuff that has
been allocated via the wrappers.
