I'm with Thomas and Nicolas, I personally prefer not to have compiler
specific options or keywords if at all possible. This only adds to

If you need compiler specific keywords, make sure to encapsulate them in
#define statements so they can be redefined for otehr compilers without
cluttering all source files.

ANSI C is a perfect standard and can be followed.
