On some platforms, it is. The current system is evil hackery anyway.
Makefile should not butcher CFLAGS like this.
For what it’s worth, --disable-werror is the same, just a different

gcc ignores that cast to void. Damn pile of crap, it is.

Not always possible or reasonable, but better than using a dummy
variable which causes warnings with other, more clueful, bootstrap
compilers. (I h̲a̲d̲ the problem with nice in mksh; I chose to ignore
that one warning.)
