This is a harmless warning and is on our list to fix for 4.2

Thanks, it can be useful for us to see the full context, in which case
using something like tee(1) to collect the full log and attaching it can
be useful.

These are genuine warnings but aren't causing build failures (I presume
no -Werror in that subdir).

This means you are missing the SDL development package. I'm not sure if
this is optional or mandatory, nor whether this message is fatal without
more context from the build logs.

These are currently to be expected and are harmless.

This one is known and a fix is in progress. It's most likely this one
which is causing the actual build error.

This slipped through our testing net due to various compiler versions
being cleverer/stupider than others and so trigger more or less
warnings, this one happens only with a more modern gcc than what our
test system uses.
