A whole bunch of files are failing to compile with warnings like this:
../../../../kern/tty.c: In function 'ttyoutput':
../../../../kern/tty.c:740: warning: pointer targets in passing argument 1 of 'b_to_q' differ in signedness
This is today (20060710)'s tree and a system built last Friday
I've filed PRs with patches for dev/ic/aic7xxx_osm.c and
dev/scsipi/cd.c, but I think I'm going to stop for now (as I have
other things I need to get done today...)
These are the files that are failing on me (but I'm not building
GENERIC so it's probably not a complete list):
gcc -v gives
Using built-in specs.
Configured with: /usr/src/tools/gcc/../../gnu/dist/gcc4/configure --enable-long-long --disable-multilib --enable-threads --disable-symvers --build=i386-unknown-netbsdelf3.99.17 --host=i386--netbsdelf --target=i386--netbsdelf
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.1.2 20060628 prerelease (NetBSD nb1 20060628)
and there's nothing pertinent in /etc/mk.conf.
It seems surprising that nobody else would be running into this, but
as far as I can tell I'm not doing anything unusual or obviously
stupid, and the machine was freshly installed on Friday...
