  I get what you're asking for, and it's perfectly reasonable, but it's just
not the compiler's problem.  The C compiler does conform; it's the newlib C
*run-time library* that is not C89-compatible.  Gcc is doing it's part, but
gcc does not supply stdio.h; it's up to the library to wrap the headers in

  The newlib home page is  There's a newlib@
mailing list hosted at sourceware, and that's where to send patches; the home
page has all the usual details of cvs access etc. and how to contribute.  I'm
sure your help would be welcomed!
