We were there already, and I think we still are there (at least on Linux
with recent GCC, maybe it decayed on Windows).

For just compiling the sources, the default of --disable-werror is hence
the way to go. For actually making changes to the code, and especially
doing so as a newbie -- what's wrong with the help offered by those
compiler warnings? (Given they are caused by your changes, not by code
that was already dirty with warnings before you touched it -- which
brings me back to the point that all developers should use
--enable-werror all the time, to keep the master clean.)
