I'm not sure (it's been a long time since I've regularly used a non-gcc
cc) but I don't think so.  I believe you are thinking of this one, from 
the info page:

     As in standard C++, the elements of an aggregate initializer for an
  automatic variable are not required to be constant expressions in GNU C.
  Here is an example of an initializer with run-time varying elements:
       foo (float f, float g)
         float beat_freqs[2] = { f-g, f+g };

This only applies to aggregate expressions (curly braces).
