	If you want to fix warnings to make the tinderboxen warning-free -
that'd be much appreciated :-) of course, you can simulate that locally
by just doing:

	make clean ; make 2>&1 | tee /tmp/log | grep -n warning

	or somesuch I guess :-)

	So git doesn't track directories, only files in them (AFAICS) so
perhaps that's the first file created there ? :-)

	Patches most welcome to fix it :-)

	So - of course, the tinderbox scripts mis-classify this many warnings
as errors, since the builds are completing.

	Looks like nailing this (prolly quite easy) would fix a lot of these.

	Yep - would be nice :-) please do have a go at it ! failing that,
filing an Easy Hack would be good (just a matter of getting the
whiteboard status right in a bug).
