Just out of interest, what requirement is there to be able to build with 
compilers which support only a 27 year old version of C which was 
superseded 17 years ago? I can't imagine much need to build now with 
compilers which don't support at least the most popular features of C99 
like inline.

After recent pruning OpenSSL still supports an impressive range of 
platforms and compilers; are any of them known to support nothing newer 
than C89?
