There are more warning flags in gcc than just -Wall - perhaps some
others will give you new clues (though there might be a lot of "noise",
especially with old code). Also note that many of the gcc warnings only
work well when you have optimisation enabled, as they depend on some of
the analysis passes in the optimiser. So try at least "-O2 -Wall -Wextra".
