      [Define to nothing if C supports flexible array members, and to
       1 if it does not.  That way, with a declaration like 'struct s
       { int n; double d@<:@FLEXIBLE_ARRAY_MEMBER@:>@; };', the struct hack
       can be used with pre-C99 compilers.
       When computing the size of such an object, don't use 'sizeof (struct s)'
       as it overestimates the size.  Use 'offsetof (struct s, d)' instead.
       Don't use 'offsetof (struct s, d@<:@0@:>@)', as this doesn't work with
       MSVC and with C++ compilers.])
