With -std=gnu99 gcc won't compile that either.

That part won't say anything relevant I think. The relevant parts are
6.7.8 Initialization
"All the expressions in an initializer for an object that has static
storage duration shall be constant expressions or string literals."
and 6.6 Constant expressions, which doesn't list compound literals in
what is allowed as a constant expression in initializers.
