Note that GUB is our third cross build system. Cross building a whole
dependency chain of packages can be quite a challenge.
Combine that with laziness and ignorance and you have the reason why
our previous incarnations of cross build systems mostly worked with an
old style [shellish/perlish] concept: ignore any errors unless
explicitly checked and let's hope for the best--just as long as the
**** thing builds!
GUB is, amongst other things, an attempt at a dependable build system,
most any error will break the build---I'm sure you've noticed ;-)
Having said that, looking at eliminating warnings is always a good
thing if it's not conflicting with other priorities..
