What I'm trying to say is:

* Reasonable recent compilers support c99 features without -c99
  explicitelly passed on command line

* It's a very bad idea to hardcode switches in random leaf Makefiles
  as from maintenance point of view this is real disaster

If we ever want to stick to some C standard it has to be a top level
decision, but honestly I do prefer the compiler defaults.
