Almost all of those warnings are generated by lint(1),
with a few from groff(1) and gcc(1).
I've observed that lint sooks too much, and really needs some
work to make it less aggressive (e.g, the "#elif ..." warning).
The gcc warnings are primarily under src/x11, and are harder
to resolve because that stuff is a reachover build of third
It is extremely unlikely that any fixes to lint(1) (or to the source
files) to reduce these particular warnings will be backported to
the netbsd-2-0 CVS branch before NetBSD 2.0 ships.
