That build failure occurred even with the Gnulib module 'c99' included.

When this topic came up in 2017, you asked whether we should bury support for IRIX cc[1], I opined that we should drop support[2], and Tom G. Christensen said you needed MIPSpro 7.4.0 or later for c99 support[3] which I guess you didn't have just now.

I wouldn't worry about even the latest IRIX cc (much less older ones), as SGI stopped producing IRIX in 2006 and stopped supporting it in 2013, and at this point IRIX is merely an exercise in nostalgia, just like (say) Solaris 9 and earlier.
