No, I was thinking more along the lines "don't use -xc99=all".
It's clearly a problem to do that, or anything like that, regardless
of whether one is using cc or gcc or whatever.

The main reason people use -xc99=all is that autoconf tries it.
And the only reason autoconf tries it is to work around problems
I ran into with Forte Developer 7 C on Solaris 9.  I'll look into
a better way to work around those problems, whatever they were
(this was 4 or 5 years ago, and it may be that the workaround is
no longer needed).
