Tools that use gnulib are regularly built by all sorts of picky C
compilers.  That is why all gnulib modules should build even with gcc
-ansi -pedantic, even if GNU Emacs doesn't need this feature.

Installers who insist on compiling applications with picky compilers
may suffer a bit in performance -- or, in a pinch, they might even go
without some behavior extensions -- but the application should still
run and should still be useful.
