libgc-d is a binding to the libgc garbage collection library (also known as the Boehm-Demers-Weiser GC). This library is primarily useful in the D world for programming language implementations and virtual machines, as D has a built-in GC.
You build libgc-d by using Waf:
$ waf configure --lp64=true --mode=release $ waf build $ waf install
You can of course adjust the parameters to configure as needed.
