It seems that particular gcc 4.3.1 compiler showing these errors are distro-
patched from Ubuntu (obo's server), as other build servers with 4.3.1 don't
show the same warnings (like my and amiconn's servers). I'm not sure, but
possibly we can enforce these warnings with the command line on all of these
non-warning 4.3.1 ones, and that should be worth looking up.

Nils Wallménius is working on addressing these problems, as can be seen in
FS#9281.
