I've had a look at the standard, and in a sense we're both right ;-). There
is a distinction between the linkage of the member's name and the linkage of
the member's type. (see sect 7.5 para 4).

So I tried the following example which comes pretty much straight from this
para. According to the std, this defines a data member such that the name
has C++ language linkage and the type is pointer to C function:

extern "C" typedef void FUNC_c();

class C {
        static FUNC_c* q;

Compiling with 2.95.2, I get:

$ gcc -c flibble.cxx
flibble.cxx:1: multiple storage classes in declaration of `FUNC_c'

g++ bug?
