So the reason tinderbox missed this is because kdrive is disabled by default.  I've enabled it in my tinderbox going forward.

I'll send a patch soon to the list to fix kdrive/linux build (note that the issues seem restricted to just linux portions of kdrive since it builds fine on darwin...)

I'm also considering updating util-macros to include a configure option to disable the error flags (and just make them normal warnings).  How does --disable-selective-werror sound for this?

I *really* don't want to disable these by default.  Having them on would've caught quite a few bugs that I've fixed since enabling them locally ~9 months ago, including some driver issues due to implicit prototypes not being an error!
