| I have 
|   WERROR=-Werror export WERROR
| and I (and a number of others) seem to agree that this intentional
| self-harm is important.

I would agree -- you know my religion.  But that agreement is
conditioned by pragmatism: sometimes warnings have been out of our
control (eg. GCC changes, system header bugs, ...).

| Are you saying that 4.5.1 is different than 4.5.0?

I've not tried to build the system.  I was just reacting to reports
that you experienced a problem but Paul didn't seem to.

I then went into C Lawyer mode.

| looking... I tested with 4.5.2 on an ubuntu maverick system.
| debian has 4.6. in unstable. I wonder if it's in backports yet.

So: perhaps the next question is to Paul: do you see this message as a
warning?  Perhaps not in all systems' builds, but in some?
