The ones that are -Werror=... are the ones that are *really* bad and will catch hard to diagnose runtime issues. The strict compilation option that currently exists turns all warnings into errors which makes it not particularly useful.
I made sure that things built via tinderbox with all these flags for the past 2 months before putting out a release based on them, but unfortunately there are a few corners that didn't get stressed (like this kdrive LP64 case, although I'm surprised I didn't hit it on tifa-linux64 and will look into that).
It's unfortunate that this didn't get caught before the release, but it will definitely be fixed for 1.11.4.
