Re: -Wextra

I was about to just remove this completely anyway, since it breaks even
on gcc 3.3. There's no reason we should be requiring 3.4 to build. It
doesn't make sense to, anyway. So, I'm all for removing it. I think it
was committed accidentally by Kjarten anyway, as I didn't see a 
ChangeLog entry for it.
