Hi Laurent,

We don't have an easy way to suppress -Werror (no equivalent of JDK's 
--disable-warnings-as-errors configure option).

For the short term, you can edit buildSrc/linux.gradle and remove the 
--Werror flags that are causing the problems.

Can you file a bug to track fixing these warnings on gcc 6? Even though 
we still build our production bits using gcc 4.9.1 we don't want to stop 
someone from building on the latest compiler.
