Reviving an old thread here:

The C99 compliance page was last updated in 2011 and it currently
shows a large amount of outdated information.

I see this page being used in many discussion forums, on IRC, etc. to
show FreeBSD in a negative light. We need to either (A) move this to
the wiki (b) update it on a routine basis or (c) delete it.

Can I please have a volunteer go through the page and tell me what to
change?  I am more than happy to act as the 'doc proxy' but someone
needs to commit to monitoring changes.
