  No, you don't understand, it's a gcc bug.  Some functions are declared
as returning void, but it still gives that warning.

  I know, gcc bug, fix gcc.  But do we really want the gnome build
system fragile against bugs in the gcc warning system?

  I don't see any advantage in hardcoding -Werror in makefiles, as
opposed to let developers add it to their own CFLAGS.
