Blocks are in clang and are slowly making their way into commercial compilers, but the only two versions of gcc that support them are the ones shipped by Apple and FreeBSD.  

Huh.  Can I ask what specific need is driving that?  As you point out, you’ve got clang and you’ve also got the blocks support from Apple gcc back-ported, so that covers all the architectures you could possibly want to generate code for.  Wanting to hold base to some retro K&R standard for its own sake seems… weird… so I must be missing some part of the need statement, hence my question?
