Confirmed on Sierra with Xcode 9.2. It built successfully on Sierra on 2017-04-24 with whatever version of Xcode we had installed on the buildbot worker at that time.

The code in question is... terrible...

It was converted programmatically from FORTRAN to C in 1990. It's a wonder it's been working this long.

Fortunately it seems they ran into this problem on OS2 and Windows before, and the same fix works on macOS now.
