Unfortunately, "-ansi" also disables all of the feature test macros,
so you have to re-enable them manually, e.g.


_BSD_SOURCE and _SVID_SOURCE are sufficient for everything except
sigaction(), which also requires _POSIX_SOURCE.

However, using _GNU_SOURCE doesn't work, as sys/ucontext.h (included
by signal.h) and curses.h both try to define ERR.

The above CFLAGS setting works, and highlighted the "inline" error in
src/raster/r.sun/main.c, as well as the use of C++ comments in
