Hard to say :)  I think my questions are limited to, in decreasing order
of importance:

  * Is there any system that we target that doesn't have C99 stdint.h
    and stddef.h ?

  * Is there any system that we target that doesn't support C99 inline

  * C99 mixed decls and statements?

  * C99 one-line comments (// foo) ?

  * C99 compound literals? ((struct x) { 1, 2 }) ?

  * stdbool.h

I want to use C99 inside Guile, and I want to eventually replace
scm_t_uint8 with uint8_t.

I assume MinGW uses GCC.  What version?  I see that the version 6 series
is available on
