Description rshapiro 1999-06-03 20:11:58 UTC
In glibc-devel-2.1.1-6 a gratuitous change to
stdio.h/libio.h was made which prevents stdin, stderr and
stdout from being used as initializers.

The code below complies on every system I've tried *except*
the latest glibc-devel-2.1.1.

#include <stdio.h>
FILE *x = stdout;

An (unnacceptable) workaround is to use
_IO_stdout.
