gc_inhibit_torture definition twice?

I have a problem to understand the way gc_inhibit_torture is defined.
In include/Defn.h it is declared as extern, using the __MAIN__ trick this leads to
a definition in main/main.c.
But in main/memory.c you define (and initialize) gc_inhibit_torture again:
int gc_inhibit_torture = 1; /* gets set to zero after initialisations */
Then, in e.g. unix/system.c immediately at the beginning of main() you initialize
gc_inhibit_torture once more:
int main(int ac, char **av)
int value, ierr;
char *p, msg;
Rstart Rp = &rstart;
gc_inhibit_torture = 1;
Can anybody explain the reason for this implementation?
