Well, we try to build FOSS applications with this option by default in Solaris
(sfw gate).
But I can now confirm that without this option Wireshark 1.3.5 will build fine.
(I have vague feeling that in past some Wireshark module required C99 mode)

So in general Wireshark has no problem with C99 but this one.. It's little bit
pity. But if Wiresahrk is really targeted for C89 we can maybe close this bug
