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 http://sourceware.org/newlib. 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!
