Hello Carl,

I have nothing changed. Compiled over 400+ packages in last 10 days, but
few like dico do not work out of the box.

I have gcc 5.3.0. How would I change settings to warning?

I don't know the answer, but some things to try:
from "man gcc":
            Downgrade some diagnostics about nonconformant code from errors to warnings.  Thus, using -fpermissive
            allows some nonconforming code to compile.
   Options to Request or Suppress Warnings
       Warnings are diagnostic messages that report constructions that are not inherently erroneous but that are
       risky or suggest there may have been an error.

you could add the missing declaration which is:
 char *gets(char *s);

post your ./stdio.h, maybe we can figure it out
