I guess it all depends what exact meaning __STRICT_ANSI__ is supposed to have.
Either its definition chooses only ISO C90 (resp. C99) features in the
headers, or it can be combined with other feature set macros with the result
of a union between ISO C90 (resp. C99) features and features selected by
the other feature macros.
The __STRICT_ANSI__ documentation in info gcc doesn't seem to favor either
of these definitions, at least in my reading.
