Then GCC may not C99 compliant as the manpage claims "it might not work as
expected". This is probably a pretty horrible example because only the author
can know what is supposed to be "expected" here.

My point though is that you convince the compiler to shut up and not warn about
constructs which are not portable or have undefined behavior. So the absence of
compiler warnings does not mean that the code is correct at all.
