"this year" meaning 2007?  Or in the last 12 months?

I searched for such a bug report and found only
which mentions m68k SunOS 4.1.1 and sparc sunos 4.1.4.  However, in
you asked "Does anybody actually use these systems outside of a
museum?", noting that Sun itself dropped support for these operating
systems long ago, and didn't get a response.

I just checked
and Sun stopped fixing bugs in SunOS 4.1.1 on 1997-01-06 and in SunOS
4.1.4 on 2000-09-30, and stopped giving advice about them on
2000-01-76 and 2003-09-30 respectively.

Obviously it's up to you as to whether to do C89 cleanup, but if that
bug report is what we're talking about, I wouldn't worry about it.

On the other hand, is libtool supposed to address the problem of
freestanding C compilers?  If so, the only headers it is allowed to
assume are <float.h>, <limits.h>, <stdarg.h>, and <stddef.h>.  If
memory serves, gnulib sometimes assumes freestanding, but more often
