We have declaration-after-statements all over libctf, so if people
really do try to compile with a pre-C99 compiler, we'll know (and I'll
fix them all then and growl loudly).
For that matter there are also some in bfd, so it's not just me.
(But this one is totally gratuitous and doesn't even improve clarity, so
I'll fix it :) )
