This became invalid before FreeBSD-2.0 was released.

Most special cases to support gcc's before approx 2.7 are now bogus.
Unlike the above, most of them are just for optimizations or for better
diagnostics, so removing them shouldn't break compiling with old versions
of gcc any more than not having the for other C compilers breaks compiling
with other C compilers.
