I should mention that gcc-4.6 gives another warning[1].  In general I
think -Werror is a good tool for development but not so good when
autobuilding, since warnings can subtly vary from version to version
and platform to platform.

My patch also mixed in a vaguely related feature --- namely, support
for DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS, DEB_CFLAGS_APPEND, and buildflags.conf.

Fixing warnings is good, too. :)

Thanks for your work,
