-std=c99 is not part of any standard and our Makefiles are full of them.
as(1), ld(1), and cc(1) are not part of POSIX and we keep using them.
Again, Please stop doing this kind of patches and center in changes
that actually improve code. If we find a system where using ranli is
a problem then we can revisit this.
