I don't understand how C89 vs. C99 enters into it.  Explain?

For the record, I do assume C99.  Among other things, the code makes 
significant use of bool, designated initializers, and inline.

However, I don't intermix declarations with executable statements because
that gives splint the screaming fantods (dies with an internal error). Nor
does the code use variadic macros, flexible arrays, type-generic math,
or type complex.
