Well it may be under some circumstances, but after reading more 
carefully I think it's a kind of cheat; here are the references I saw:

http://www.ioccc.org/1994/smr.hint

and this page lists references to the Makefile, which just seems to copy 
the empty smr.c file to an empty executable.  It's unclear why they 
thought this constituted a C program?

http://www.ioccc.org/years.html

sorry :)
