I disagree.  "gcc -Wall" is at times very noisy and tends to flag
perfectly valid C as suspect.  The noise level sometimes makes it hard
to find real problems drowned in the sea of false alarms.

I usually compile once with -Wall after significant changes, and that
is enough to catch any real issues.
