There may be lots of other significant warnings that do point to problems,
and those warnings are exactly the reason why -Werror exists and turned on.

Okay, let me get this straight.
This Werror was set FOR YEARS and didn't come up with any problems on existing compilers. You seem to be saying that by turning it off now, suddenly new problems will magically appear that affects all these GCC 3.0 - 4.4 systems fatally (or insidiously).

Obviously that's nonsense, so then you must mean compilers newer than 4.7, which you said NetBSD wouldn't have anyway.

Do you have a realistic case here?  Because this just seems argumentative.

Are you in favor of grepping all makefiles and patches to see what packages are removing -Werror and reworking them? Because that is the logical conclusion to your stance.
