Thanks, I could reproduce this using `CFLAGS += foo' in a  I'm installing the appended patch to correct this.

This one is just a warning, it does't change Automake's exit status.

The current policy is that any warning that is not easy to fix
in a way which is backward compatible with Automake 1.6 should
be disabled by default.  This is the reason why `-Wportability'
is off by default.  In 1.8 we can turn -Wportability on because
people who don't care about portability issue can just say
`-Wno-portability' and it will work fine with 1.7 too.

This said, the concept of "warning" is new in Automake 1.7.
Previous versions produced only errors, and it's likely there
are still many error messages we ought to change into warnings.

        * tests/gnuwarn.test: Append to CFLAGS to check for this.
