That's one way of doing it, which will activate warnings per module. If 
you just want to enable for all of those modules, you can go into 
<top>/make/common/SetupJavaCompilers.gmk and change the javac parameters 
$(DISABLE_WARNINGS) with what you want).

It could also work to just run "make DISABLE_WARNINGS='-Xlint:all 
-Xmaxwarns 10000'". But that will also enable warnings for build tools 
java code and demos.
