Thanks for your feedback.

My up-to-date Ubuntu 15.04 has gcc 4.9.2, which still requires
-std=c99 or you get a link error (multiple definitions; debug builds
only because gcc is very aggressive with inlining). gcc 5 changes the
default to C11, but for know the build requirement for LLVM is only
GCC 4.7 (http://llvm.org/docs/GettingStarted.html#host-c-toolchain-both-compiler-and-standard-library).

The many systems supported are Clang, GCC and Visual Studio. This
change works for Clang and GCC. Visual Studio users will use the CMake
build and the autotools didn't work anyway because of the other flags
