The mainline gmp repository and the next major GMP release (7.0) will
require a C99 compiler.  I believe we have not fully determined which
C++ standard we will require (or, Marc, did we come to a conclusion?).
We will use C99 constructs and will gradually clean up code which
handles older environments.

In the meantime, GMP 6 will continue to support C89.  We actually
removed some accidental C99ism with the 6.2.1 release.
