The danger is that OTHER, newer, warnings will sneak in later
and no one will notice. I spent quite some time nailing all
the warnings from gcc, and actually found a few real problems.
I would hope that between alpha and final release ALL of the
compiler warnings would be squashed.

How about casting as needed to eliminate the warning?
I've found that things which happen to work on SunOS may
not just happen to work on HPUX, for example, but they
often will work if cast properly.

Hmmm. I didn't see that when I compiled the previous version.
Could it be system include file differences?
