Gcc has some extra warnings that can assist in porting from ILP32 to LP64.
-Wimplicit -Wmain -Wreturn-type -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes
-Wmissing-declarations -Wredundant-decls -Wformat -Wchar-subscripts -Wconversion
I suggest fixing any prototype/declaration warnings first and then recompiling
to get a fresh list of warnings, otherwise you could find yourself changing
Is the driver known to work on ILP32 machines?
-Wunused -Wswitch -Wtrigraphs -Wuninitialized -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-qual
-Wcast-align -Wwrite-strings -Wnested-externs -W -Wparentheses -Wcomment
-Waggregate-return -Winline -Wshadow
Note that -Wuninitialized can generate false positives, and some of the
others are things that "might" be bugs, but might be okay.
I think that NetBSD could benefit from adding at least some of these options
to the makefiles.
