It looks like you did apply this patch:


Thanks! So this ticket can be closed.

While C99 may be 15 years old, C89 is the default mode of the gcc 4.2.1
compiler, which is the default compiler on OS X 10.6, which was released by
Apple just 5 years ago in August 2009 and was not replaced by OS X 10.7 until
July 2011. According to one company's survey just 6 weeks ago
(https://chitika.com/insights/2014/yosemite-preview-adoption) OS X 10.6
remains the second most popular version of OS X with 17.5% market share,
behind OS X 10.9 with 45.7%. So it is important to continue to support users
using OS X 10.6 and its older compiler.
