And this probably includes GCC with -Werror. For instance, I now test
CFLAGS="-O2 -Wall -Wold-style-declaration -Wold-style-definition
-Wmissing-parameter-type -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations
-Wmissing-field-initializers -Wno-error=unused-function -Werror"
to make sure that we follow the rules and detect potential problems
