As Daniel seems to think that is can be useful
(maybe for non GNU compilers?) should
we use some configure set macro like
that would be set to nothing for GNU gcc
but could be inline for other compilers?

Configure already checks for the ability of inline,
but it could be modified to discard inline altogether
for gcc, no?
