Check out

which provides a gc_alloc, and for new(gc) all you need is something
like this:

    struct gc_t {};
    static const gc_t gc;

    void* operator new (size_t n, const gc_t&) { return GC_malloc(n); }
    void* operator new[](size_t n, const gc_t&) { return GC_malloc(n); }

    void operator delete (void* ptr, const gc_t&) {}
    void operator delete[](void* ptr, const gc_t&) {}

Much easier than hacking shared_ptr.
