Sorry, I was incredibly unclear.  Are the flags additive in cc, i.e. - are 
they toggling the same switch?  The way I stated it, it sounded like I meant 
did make keep the flags straight.

And I meant can I put CWARNFLAGS=-Wno-error in /etc/mk.conf.

I guess I can't watch the Fox Business Report, play grab-ass with my wife 
AND keep a coherent thought going in a mailing list response, age takes 
its toll.
