I just committed the patch. Is there any plan to upgrade the
version of gcc used to compile haiku?

Well we can actually support both gcc2 and the latest gcc, in a
similar way as Linux handles 32/64bit libraries.

It's just that the base components for R1 will still be built with
gcc2, and when it just works I usually stick to gcc2 for porting.
But since it doesn't really export any library to anything else, we
don't have a hard requirement there, I'll just have to change my
local .profile to override the arch and fix the recipe in

Don't we have any other OS that has C89 requirements anymore?

Haiku is the only port with such a requirement.

Note that qemacs source code is not really C89 either as we use some
GNU extensions such as the designated structure initializers

Yeah but gcc2 is still gcc, so some extensions were already there.

Anyway, I'll just switch the recipe to gcc5.
