We had a couple of exotic build machines a while ago: xlc, the
HPUX compiler and a couple of others all support the subset of C99
we are aiming for.  In fact the support of the commercial Unix
compilers for C99 is quite good -- the common error messages
suggest that several of them use the same front end (Comeau?).
