Well, looking more closely it's actually a system header attribute that
brings up that warning:

error: ignoring return value of 'size_t fwrite(const void*, size_t,
size_t, FILE*)', declared with attribute warn_unused_result

And it seems there is no GCC switch to turn that warning off (except
-O0).  Maybe we should check for the written bytes to be the same as

  assert(count == size, "copyright info truncated");
