Well... By some counts, gcc-2.95 supports VLAs, and indeed a small sample
compiles OK with or without -std=c9x - Yet disk.c fails. Passing c9x at
configure time leads to failures elsewhere that would take a while to

Many projects have dropped gcc-2.95 as it is no longer being maintained, so
perhaps it is time to do the same here - Using AC_PROG_CC_C99 and throw an
error if ac_cv_prog_cc_c99=no would do the trick.

Regards, Paul.
