gl_WARN_ADD does not work with -Wno-xxxx warnings

gcc handling of -Wno-xxxx flags is different from its handling of -Wxxxx
flags as described in

"When an unrecognized warning option is requested (e.g.,
-Wunknown-warning), GCC emits a diagnostic stating that the option is not
recognized. However, if the -Wno- form is used, the behavior is slightly
different: no diagnostic is produced for -Wno-unknown-warning unless other
diagnostics are being produced."

This means that with gcc, gl_WARN_ADD([-Wno-unknown-warning]) will always
succeed, leading to issues like

I guess that when gl_WARN_ADD is used with -Wno-unknown-warning, it should
test as well the corresponding -Wunknown-warning flag, though I don't know
how well this will work with non-gcc compilers.
