It's also possible to redirect stderr to a file so that the build
doesn't stumble on the first warning.

I my opinion, making the build less verbose will increase the
probability that the warnings will be caught and fixed by their makers
rather than by dedicated warning hunters who may not know the code so
well as those who wrote it.  And that's a good thing.
