It is quite easy to use the boehm gc inside delphi. I did some test a
few years ago. Since the fpc memory manager interface is very close to
delphi, it should be no problem to port the boehm gc to fpc.

the major disadvantage I see, is, that all the existing code is not gc
aware - you loose the benefits of a gc.
