Because that was added in git commit 897685771140 in 2008, and the last 
GPLv2 version of gcc was git c473c074663d in July 2007.

The issue is that I need to migrate aboriginal to ellcc, but my day job 
is taking 90% of my energy, Toybox is getting about 9%, and what's left 
is split between kernel documentation (which I'm totally dropping the 
ball on) and aboriginal (ditto).

But in the meantime I can try to work around this. Thanks for the help 
tracking it down. I suspected something like that, but hadn't spent the 
time to identify it yet.
