I've been secretly waiting for upstream to release gc-7.2c (prior 7.2 releases contained a minor regression), I'll try pinging them today
If they don't act soonish (say, by mid week), i'll just pull down the .c patches from git and apply against 7.2b

Me too waiting for 7.2c, with patches to make ecl work again.
If you do submit a package while waiting for 7.2c, could just fetch head of gc-7_2-hotfix-2 (https://github.com/ivmai/bdwgc/branches), or please add the commits
I made an almost identical patch as the above ones, with the difference that I had added definitions to public headers, but symbols should only be made visible in 7.2 api (7.3 will export some if not all those symbols used by ecl).
gc-7.2b-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
gc-7.2b-2.fc16 went to stable updates 2012-06-28 03:44:17
gc-7.2b-2.fc17 went to stable updates 2012-06-28 03:22:23
looks like bodhi missed autoclosing this.
