Last time this particular discussion came up, the conclusion was that
hunting for warnings is a lost battle as the generated warnings depend
heavily on the toolchain used [1,2].

So, I think for now we're not going to address build errors which occur
when omitting "--disable-warnings-as-errors" in the configure line.
