Well no.  It will still only compile on compilers that support GCC's
variable macro arg syntax and its computed-goto-to-label support;  the
only compiler that works with all this is GCC (even icc won't work).
Oh, and named record initialization, too (a C99-ism).

If you send a patch that removes these dependencies while not getting
any performance loss (and the restrict's matter a lot, but there's not
enough of them at this exact moment), it'll sure be applied.  But as
long as we require GCC anyway, I prefer using all C99 goodies that ease
my life.

I'll look into the auto-config-types thingie sometime soonish, btw.
Yes I'm slow these days, sorry.
