* misc.c (GC_stdout, GC_stderr): Move the definition to the place where GC_log is defined (Unix only). * misc.c (GC_init): Recognize "GC_ONLY_LOG_TO_FILE" environment variable and the similar macro; redirect GC_stdout and GC_stderr to GC_log if "GC_LOG_FILE" environment variable is set unless prohibited by GC_ONLY_LOG_TO_FILE (Unix only). * doc/README.environment (GC_ONLY_LOG_TO_FILE): Document. * doc/README.macros (GC_ONLY_LOG_TO_FILE): Ditto.
