I doubt this, expecially given David's results that gcc version in the
compilation of gcl itself is of no consequence.  This is the 'old'
standard method of function prototype declaration, and is explicitly
supported in the current C standard as a less restrictive prototype
declaration option to my understanding.

Take care,
