Well, like he pointed on the follow-up, other issues might arise from
that define. The FFmpeg code doesn't depend on #ifdef WIN32, so this
would only be needed for the external libraries. I admit I haven't
done a full-blown build to see all possible problems with external
libraries since the -std=c99 change, but I will eventually.

I wonder the same thing. This can easily be avoided by compiling faac
with -std=c99 and no more patching is required.
