Well, gcc can deal with it, so I guess the only ones left are Sun's
compiler (which should), and OpenBSD still use gcc 2.95 for VAX and
m68k, but off the top of my head that doesn't support named initialisers

Aside from that, it's only really IBM (Dan Nicholson, though he hasn't
been around of late) and SCO (Kean Johnson) that I know of who are still
building on the more obscure platforms.
