This was an issued once faced when people migrated from K&R C to ANSI C.

Nothing wrong with having a gconst that is defined to nothing on systems that do not support it, or for compatibility. Not saying it should be done or not - but if it is done, this isn't the first time in history this compatibility issue has been faced.
