I don't think the pre-initialization of simple types is the issue here.
Or maybe Last being an int and thus using that pre-initialization
instead of having a contructor symbol is the root of the compilers

It has been occuring on the d,debian-clang farm node for the last few
weeks. Relevant part of the log output below.

Makefile:817: recipe for target 'old_api.lo' failed

The suggested declaration turns out not to e very portable, so I went
with moving the global symbol into a method.
