Well, it didn't originally.

Most of the bugs were fixed before Fedora 22 arrived with gcc-5.

E.g. by building on Fedora Rawhide last year, reporting the bugs, and
getting them fixed before Rawhide turned into Fedora 22.

Using a command line option to get 1989 compiler semantics in 2015 seems
like a mistake.
