Rodrigo told me to post this here, so...

Current CVS uses the -Wextra compiler flag to enable some extra warnings for gcc.
AFAICS -Wextra has only been added (or rather renamed) in gcc 3.4.0, and it
certainly isn't supported by gcc 2.95 which I am using.

Therefore I filed bug 321779 [1] where I also posted a patch to simply remove
-Wextra completely. However, if the flag is dear enough to your hearts that
you can't stand dropping it, I'm also willing to try to come up with a more
sophisticated patch that uses -Wextra only where appropriate and -W otherwise.

Opinions? Please discuss away.
