It only needs to have the same set of warnings that the compiles using
it will have -- if those include -Wall -Werror, which I suppose in
general they probably will, then it had better do *all* configure
tests with -Wall -Werror, because this isn't going to be the only
thing that might belch.

Except of course for the GNU-origin ones that don't work properly that

Also it's probably a good idea to check size_t as well as int and
unsigned. IIRC there's at least one old version of DU on alpha where
it had to be size_t.
