Well, there are no warnings in Bison source code =).

LOL, yes but it was differents, it was the generated parser, which
did any warnings, here we're talking about Bison's sources.  Warnings
in generated code is another problem, that doesn't leave any choice.

I'm not really sure to understand you, are you talking about Bison's
sources, or about Bison's generated parser ?  This is really
different, we're allowed to leave warnings in Bison's sources but not
in the generated parser.
