Your best bet is to replace the garbage collector in a 3m build
(instead of the normal conservative-GC build). The 3m GC interface to
MzScheme is defined by src/mzscheme/gc2/gc2.h and described further in
src/mzscheme/gc2/README. We currently have two implementations of the
interface: "newgc.c" and "compact.c".
