Yet more wreakage from legacy compilers. Hate to rediscuss this issue again,
but I really think 1.33 needs to be the end of the line for these
non-compliant compilers. Imagine the regression testing cycles and
intellectual energy that will be saved by abondoning porting libraries to
these non-compliant compilers.
