unfortunately I'm not yet familar enough with configure magic, or else I 
would sit down now and add something like that:
- check version for -dev tag
- if -dev tag then add all possible warning flags dependent on detected 
compiler so that *every* developer regardless of his platform / compiler 
automatically gets aware of all warnings compilers might put out on 
every platform

I believe that such a hack would make the situation much better than it 
is now, and would often avoid usage of inappropriate types in 1st place.
