1) Please actually detect gcc properly if you're going to do this. I'm 
so tired of removing gcc-isms from Makefiles (and from C and especially 
C++ code written by folks who wouldn't know a language standard if it 
bit them).

2) Why? I can understand why a _developer_ wants all the warnings, but 
what value do they add to the poor schmuck who's just trying to build an 
IMAP server? It's just noise, and provides no benefit that I've ever 
been able to figure out.
