Some of the code changed here has its authoritive source in pkgsrc.
The "gating" is just an excuse for not doing it properly and increasing
maintainance burden without no reason at all. If Christos maintains
something and likes to pay the price, I don't care. This is not true
here though. It is especially true for something where the compiler is
just plainly wrong. Alas GCC has a long history of not choosing a good
balance between noise and actual warnings.
