There are two different issues here.  The languages that gcc can compile,
and the language that gcc is written in.  I was commenting on the former one.
You are talking about the latter one.  Yes, gcc 3.3 is supposed to be written
in a subset of ISO C90 that is compilable by a K&R C compiler, but gcc 3.3
will itself not support K&R C as an input language.
