New submission from Hasso Tepper <hasso at estpak.ee>:

Although devel/boehm-gc builds on DragonFly, there are problems - its own 
testuite doesn't run. The test for garbage collecting functionality either 
segfaults or hangs and if boehm-gc is built with threading support (making it 
treat DragonFly as FreeBSD), threading test does the same.

Note, that boehm-gc is used by in many software pieces (mainly various 
programming languages) and is probably onw of reasons why so many languages 
actually fail to run on DragonFly.

How to test:

fetch http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Hans_Boehm/gc/gc_source/gc-7.1.tar.gz
tar zxf gc-7.1.tar.gz
cd gc-7.1
. /configure --disable-threads
gmake check
