A couple of words about --enable-strict.
It currently just adds -ansi -pedantic -Wno-long-long, but

Should check for strict ANSI C, so you can make sure no one is using
GNU extensions.

For --enable-strict, I'd instead add a -Werror, and possibly
make that the default.
Warnings depend what compiler and processor you are compiling on - I
think that would break many builds that would have succeeded otherwise
but that you cannot test.

This would force developers to fix
the warnings immediately.
Not really. Trying to force people to do things by devious mechanical
means is usually counter-productive.  The sort of people who see
warnings but do not care to fix them will just turn all error checking
