This has nothing to do with compiling as C++.
AFAIU, PROJ.4 is supposed to build with Visual C++.
Visual C++ does support C but only C89, not C99.
But, due to the fact that C++03 standard includes C89,
while using Visual C++, you can compile C sources as C++
without problems, as long as C source is C89.
C99 source code will not compile regardless of C or C++ mode,
because Visual C++ does not implement C99 standard.
Some of features of C99 are included in most recent C++11 standard, but not VLA
