Well, those are "unused variable warnings" so not an error. Could be easily fixed though.

Right, this is a known issue in gcc 5.1, see here:


The (easy) workaround is to avoid the "-Ofast" optimization.

E.g. something like that in src/sna/compiler.h:

--- a/src/sna/compiler.h
+++ b/src/sna/compiler.h
@@ -63,7 +63,7 @@
 #define sse4_2 __attribute__((target("sse4.2,sse2,fpmath=sse")))
-#if HAS_GCC(4, 6) && defined(__OPTIMIZE__)
+#if HAS_GCC(4, 6) && !HAS_GCC(5, 0) && defined(__OPTIMIZE__)
 #define fast __attribute__((optimize("Ofast")))
 #define fast

But I do not think this is something suitable for upstream as the bug lies in gcc, so it's just a workaround until the issue is fixed in gcc.
