The language accepted by the compiler in the user's source code (as
opposed to in system headers) shouldn't depend on the target except for
certain well-defined areas such as target attributes and built-in
functions; behaving the same across different systems is an important
feature of GCC. This isn't one of those areas of target-dependence; it's
generic syntax rather than e.g. exploiting a particular processor feature.
I understand now, thanks for explaining.
