RFC: Anyone use compilers that do not support C99's __func__ or the earlier __FUNCTION__ to build Samba?

Hi folks,

It is suggested that there are some C compilers out there that we
should care about that do not support __func__ and do not even support

Does anyone know of any such compiler?

This bears on coding standards and the duplication that occurs today
in DEBUG messages when the compilers (the vast majority, I imagine) do
support __func__ or __FUNCTION__.
