Your undertanding is correct.
Bohem-gc is used only in the Java part of GCC ; the rest of the
compiler uses a home-grown GC which is not conservative, as a
replacement of obstack -- obstack in longer used in the "main" parts
(the diagnostic routines still use obsctaks). Please, accept
apologies for the confusion.
