I don't think the danger (or lack thereof) presented by these warnings
is being dsiputed. It is simply very annoying. I have a patition
for development that I use both in linux and Hurd. And when I run
a build from that partition while in Hurd, an inane amount of these
warnings floods the screen rendering it impossible to use even in
another terminal provided by `screen'.
