I also should mention that we need to build this with
-Wstrict-aliasing (or -Wstrict-aliasing=2) and add
-fno-strict-aliasing for the files that generate warnings.  It might
be a good idea to build the whole thing without strict aliasing, as
the compiler can't catch every case.

I'm getting tempted to just add -fno-strict-aliasing to my default
CFLAGS, as MANY packages generate warnings.  I am wondering, though,
whether this is necessary since if it were that critical, I'm left
wondering why it hasn't been done already.

"The frivolity and boredom which unsettle the established order, the
vague foreboding of something unknown, these are the heralds of
approaching change.  The gradual crumbling that left unaltered the
face of the whole is cut short by a sunburst which, in one flash,
illuminates the features of the new world."  --G.W.F. Hegel,
