I noticed this in lib/verify.h:

/* The condition (99 < __GNUC__) is temporary, until we know about the
   first G++ release that supports static_assert.  */
#if (99 < __GNUC__) && defined __cplusplus

The relevant commit is:

commit ef1271787
Author: Bruno Haible <br...@clisp.org>
Date:   Sat Apr 9 02:12:11 2011 +0200

    verify: Fix syntax error with GCC 4.6 in C++ mode.

This is odd, since the GCC web page on C++11 support:

says that static assertions have been supported for C++ since GCC 4.3:

Static assertions N1720
<http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2004/n1720.html> GCC 4.3
<https://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.3/changes.html> __cpp_static_assert >= 200410

Assuming I'm failing to understand something, could the comment in verify.h
be clarified as to what exactly is missing, if indeed it still is?
