Do you actually care about the "long long" error? In other words, is
checking for that error part of the purpose of the testcase?

If not, you can just suppress it, with either:

{ dg-prune-output "ISO C90 does not support 'long long'" }


{ dg-excess-errors "" }

(The first one will prune matching lines from the output, the latter
will ignore **all** errors that aren't already matched by a dg-error
line, which might hide other problems in the testcase).

If checking for that error is part of the test then you can either
make the regex match it (it's a regex, so it can match multiple

{ dg-error "foo bar|ISO C90 does not support 'long long" }

Or you can add a second dg-error directive that expects the string to
match the previous line, using arelative  line number of -1:

{ dg-error "ISO C90 does not support 'long long'" "" { target *-*-* } -1 }
