The PalmPilot port will never work with boehm_gc, so it doesn't matter ;-)

Seriously though, I have put those structs inside #ifdefs. The real benefit
is not having to check types against them in the debugger in non-agc grades.
That won't matter for the internal debugger, but will for the external one.
