Luckily, as you said, GCC can do it :) g++ only, for now, but this
should change.

No. By the time GCC 3.0 comes out, function-at-a-time processing will
have migrated to C as well; the process is already underway.

But it isn't needed; GCC 3.0 should support this sort of thing in C,
too, unless there is something I am missing.
