I have three compilers forte, gcc with sun binutils and gcc
with gnu binutils. I prefer forte because it generates
better code. If I change to gcc there is no problem with -Wall.

I think checking flags is better, if you check compiler and
handle gcc and forte somone will come along with tendra and then
it will propably brake again.

I posted a suggestion to this earlier.
