Is there any interest and/or work being done in getting everything
compile cleanly (or as cleanly as possible) with gcc -Wall?  This
can be done piecemeal so as to minimize impact on others.

Another thing worth doing (IMHO) is ANSI C style function headers.
A tool like cproto can be used to finish 99% of the work.  Note
that many commercial vendors (e.g.  SGI) have already made their
sources ANSI-C-hip.  Goes a long way towards catching dumb
mistakes upfront.

I'd be more than happy to help out.

PS: along these lines: has anyone looked at using cproto
as a starting point for a new lint?
