I beleive macppc and alpha are now fixed, and possibly sparc64.
Vax already had an earlier build failure before -Wuninitialized
and the other -W options were turned on recently, due to missing
stdbool.h, due to too old compiler, which was triggered by an
update of gettext (?), and I beleive this build failure is
currently still unfixed.
