Gaetan Nadon seems to have become de-facto maintainer of
xorg-util-macros, so CC'd. Gaetan, could you review these two macros?

I guess you mean XORG_STRICT_OPTION? If X.Org can get away with
requiring C99 compilers, then I'm certainly happy to go along.

Except that libX11, for example, calls XORG_DEFAULT_OPTIONS which
includes XORG_STRICT_OPTION, but then later it calls AC_PROG_CC, and
from the comments in xorg-macros.m4 I guess that means libX11 is only
asking for C89? Perhaps the XCB utility libraries should do the same
unless they depend on C99 features.

Maybe you can explain this to us, Gaetan?
