Is this a known bug?

Is the following a known 4.2bsc C compiler bug? I think I had heard
of something related to this.

The following program segment:

    void goo();
    void (*moo)();

    moo = goo;

Produces the error:

"void.c", line 6: operands of = have incompatible types

Yet this should be a valid use of a function pointer, and replacing
the void's by int's removes the error.

Also, does anybody whether the 4.3 compiler still has this bug?
