[Rd] How to enable ANSII C checking?

I have run R CMD check on a package on Windows 2000, Linux (Debian), Linux Mandrake. On all of this platforms the check runs without any warning.
I send the package to a colleague. He runs R CMD check on his machine and gets errors eg.

mscalibD.c:161: syntax error before `int'
mscalibD.c:165: `i' undeclared (first use in this function)
mscalibD.c:165: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once

Looking at the sources the answer is simple. His compiler is set to check if the C code is ANSII compliant. On my platforms the compilers are not set to check for this.
Why? How can I tell R CMD check to check for this? I would find it usefully if R CMD check behaves with this respect similar on all platforms.
