I consider this a glibc bug that it depends of people not using -ansi (the
declaration of ngettext, for example, has these attribute declarations.).
And if we get "static function not used" warnings of other compilers, then
this is definitely not worth it (would someone want to test this?).

Else I can live with this kludge, provided it doesn't impose other
portability problems.
