What's your definition of "latest gcc"?  According to, it's
4.0.0.  How about this warning:

utilvfs.c: In function 'vfs_mkstemps':
utilvfs.c:211: warning: pointer targets in assignment differ in

It doesn't even require -Wall.

It depends on how stable it is.  Last time I tried it didn't work well.

I believe an X error handler is needed.
