So would something like my proposed AC_PROG_CC_C99 macro be good as a

and would be useful for others as well.

I am in favor of the AC_PROG_CC_C99 macro. My only concern was that open source software might actually depend on it. :-)

The use of C++-style comments in open source C code is suspect. IBM's
AIX C compiler does not support them.

But it's not a C99 compiler, is it? ;-)

No, it is not. It is a perfectly good compiler though, capable of creating powerful programs which do useful things.
