Well never mind... Figured out a simple way to build it. So if one:

1. Downloads the Boehm GC allocator and places it in a "boehm_gc" subdir
of jam/src.

2. Adds "--gc" option when building bjam.

It will compile in the GC code, and use it. Right now there's not
advantage as the algo Dave suggested is not implemented. But hey it's
easier for others to play with it this way. But if you do hack around,
use the macros defined in the "mem.h" header.
