sorry, was rather busy the last few weeks, didn't get to this until now.

If we're keeping that work on a branch for now anyway (until we have
something in the server that matches at least) don't worry about all the
warning flags. If you really want to, put a AC_MSG_WARNING in. History has
taught me that people who want to shoot themselves in a foot will do so
despite configure flags and complain loudly anyway.

Let's get the lot to just build from their respective branches without
manual interaction.
