I can't recall correctly but I think one of the dependencies (JPEG
library, ZLib one of the other few libraries - I can't recall right
correctly the exact one) _has_ a 64-bit configure option for faster
rendering using C99 if you have a 64 bit architecture.  Or probably,
one of these libs have a C99 option to use the later more-optimized
maths/float types.  I don't remember right now but it would be very
useful to find out the one library that does have such an option and
check out the configure's help for each - if you do want a speedup,
that is.

I don't know how much gcc supports C99 but I remember I did check
man/help and I did find out some C99 specific stuff in GCC man.

Best regards,
