I agree that we it's not feasible to chase down every warning in every version of GCC, or any other toolchain, but I also think that for platforms/configurations where people are actively developing changes for OpenJDK, it makes sense to try to keep it clean. This helps prevent new code from introducing warnings. For the configurations Oracle use, we keep a strict -Werror policy because we want the code to be clean

Is it not the case that building on macOS requires -disable-warnings-as-errors? Or is that only the case on more recent macOS releases that used by Oracle?
