Another possibility that may be simpler for GDB, is to change its configure.ac
files to require C99 or later everywhere. At this point it's more trouble than
it's worth to tweak source code or makefiles to cater to compilers operating in
C89 mode. Just tell your C compiler to support C99-or-better everywhere, and
your life will surely be simpler.
