I think turning off undo in "write-mostly" buffers doesn't make much sense:
the undo log takes very little space in such a case anyway (it only tracks
the boundaries of each insertion).

I think the OP's problem has more to do with writability than with the
undo facility.  Many people expect the *compile* buffer to be read-only.
