[ntp:hackers] Anybody object to requiring AnsiC for building NTP?

Folks,

One of the requirements of NTP has been that it compile on systems
without Ansi C compilers.

I'm thinking that it's time we remove this backward-compatibility
requirement.

It will let us do some code cleanup and simplification, including
the prototype stuff and, I believe, getting rid of varargs (in favor
of stdargs).  Near as I can remember...

Does anybody have a requirement to still support K&R compilers?
