After doing a dichotomy search I found that:

Next commit also made by grischka, introduced this warning:

Certainly, but providing fake initialization may have the consequence to
hide real warnings (i.e. real bugs).

One solution would be to use the preprocessor to avoid defining this
function on platforms it cannot be called. This will also have the advantage
to generate (slightly) smaller code, and also to make sure that the function
will not be used when it mustn't.

According to git blame, this is very old code (2002-07). Are you sure this
isn't due to a more recent version of your GCC compiler?
New warnings are regularly added in GCC.

Or this may be due to:
