Add VLA compatibility macro for C89-ish compilers. #452
@isotoxin is this something you're interested in reviewing or should we just go ahead and merge it?
By the way, yesterday I realised (after someone linked to it) that you've done this already, almost in the same way. Perhaps this change is useful for you to adopt so you have fewer custom changes to maintain.
For background: I'm doing this because I want to support Windows properly, and currently our tests run on Wine (on Linux) and always fail. I want to run the tests on Appveyor (a Windows CI platform), and although it's probably possible to use mingw32 on that, I'd like to take this opportunity to improve support for MSVC, probably benefitting the isotoxin client.
Sorry guys. I dont know why I missed this PR... I was ill, probably so.
