The problem arises as gcc is 'trying' to guess what ISO C standard it  
should try. My installation for example tested against ISO C90, yours  
apparently against ISO C89.

When compiling with
gcc -std=c99 ary.c
this example works perfecfly and it's using the ISO C99 stanard for  
it. Also reasonable I think, to use that one in 2006/2007
