Arggh, I forgot to answer this. What do you mean by exactly by the C99

We fixed the ECL because on Sun one header explicitely forced to used
C99 whenever using _XOPEN_SOURCE. The change affected only the file

Apart from this C99 functions are used by ECL in the mathematical
library only when the user requests signed zeros (--with-signed-zero),
and sometimes when requiring IEEE denormals, but only if there are no
other functions pre-C99 which can do the same work (copysign(), etc)

If you found any other problem I would gladly help you in tracking this.
