Please answer these questions before submitting your issue. Thanks!

What did you do?

If possible, provide a recipe for reproducing the error.
A complete runnable program is good.
A link on play.golang.org is best.

package main

// int a(void) { return 5; };
import "C"
import "fmt"

func main() {
	fmt.Println(C.a())
}

What did you expect to see?

5

What did you see instead?

# command-line-arguments
cgo-gcc-prolog:40:7: error: called object type 'struct (anonymous struct at cgo-gcc-prolog:33:2) *' is not a function or function pointer

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release (go1.9.2)?

yes

@hirochachacha is this a regression from any of the previous Go releases? If so, please change the milestone, otherwise I'll mark it for Go1.11.

The issue itself is there since day one.
However we change the macro algorithm at Go1.10. I hit on some combinations.

package main

// int a = 5;
// #define A a
import "C"
import "fmt"

func main() {
	fmt.Println(C.A)
}

The above code doesn't work on tip, but does work on 1.9.
Maybe we should call it regression. I'll let others to decide.
