And if it's posix, there's c89, which is guaranteed on Posix systems
to be the ANSI C compiler.
But there is no reason to prevent a system administrator, site, user,
or group of people, from being non-Posix compliant, and having a
program called c89 which is deviant from ANSI C in some respects.
The system would not be Posix-compliant any more, but so what? Isn't
it for the users and administrators of the system to decide if they
want a Posix compliant system?
The one thing that would be a disaster is if GCC tried to enforce
Posix naming conventions through license terms! But this is exactly
what latex is doing...
