I have put away a fix for this issue and did some other cleanup that
involved files that may be using __attribute__. I took the approach of
moving the __attribute__ check to configure.ac using
ax_c___attribute__.m4 . common.h now includes config.h .
This fix could use some testing, so please let me know if i have caused
any regressions or something isn't fixed.

The Changelog is here:

2015-10-07  Michael Petch  <address@hidden>

    * common.h, configure.ac, copying.awk, credits.sh,
      output.h, lib/simd.h, m4/Makefile.am, non-src/copying.c,
      non-src/credits.c, non-src/gnubg-stock-pixbufs.h,
      +m4/ax_c___attribute__.m4, external_l.l, external_y.y,
      sgf_l.l, sgf_y.y, non-src/external_l.c, non-src/external_y.c,
      non-src/external_y.h, non-src/sgf_l.c, non-src/sgf_y.c,
      non-src/sgf_y.h, backgammon.h : Fix problem identified by
    Mike Frysinger where __attribute__ and  _GNU_SOURCE may not
    be properly defined in some situations. This may result in
    an infinite loop on newer compilers.
