There is a patch to gcc that issues warnings for these mistakes;
The warning is turned on by the -W option.
It has not yet been adopted for gcc, but maybe someday...
In the meantime you can apply the patch on your own, as I do.
P.S. I have since changed the warning text from "string constant"
to "string literal", which I think is more pedantically correct.
