The AC_PROG_CC autoconf macro sets the variable GCC to "yes" if the
C compiler is gcc.

However, the set of flags has to be compatible with any third-party
headers which GRASS uses, as well as GRASS itself. So, I recommend
that we don't add any unnecessary switches to CFLAGS.

Individual users can always force the use of specific flags if they
wish. So long as someone compiles the code with "-ansi ..." regularly,
most gcc-isms should be caught.
