This isn't going to work well because -std=c17 (for example) disables
_DEFAULT_SOURCE for glibc, so lots of declarations go missing from the
glibc header files.  I don't see why these things should be tied
together because as I see it, this is not about standards conformance
(warnings make GCC conforming already), but programmer convenience.
