I am not aware of any violation of the C99 and POSIX specifications in 
the FOURCC build-time code. If someone found an issue, they are welcome 
to file bugs, e.g. if the code depends on a GCC extension or Linux

That is the whole point of checking for "c99": it does not have to be 
GCC. It just has to be a C99 compiler.
