SGC doesn't work because it isn't adapted to 64-bit addresses.

Linking directly to a Boehm GC port won't work, because MzScheme relies
on some modifications (which I expected to eliminate long ago, but
still haven't).

I can both fix SGC and upgrade our copy of the Boehm GC, but probably
not until next week.
