The Debian 10 builds are free of compiler warnings now!
A big thanks to Ralph for helping out.  Much appreciated.

These look good and will make the cut for 1.0.29.

This will be for the one after 1.0.29.

And this too.

I've added one MR (!289) that re-enables building of the kvs40xx and
mustek-usb2 backends for pthread libraries with non-arithmatic pthread_t
types that might make it in.  This affects our Alpine builds as well as
the BSDs.
