Hmmmm....  Metrowerks used to be good back when I used it (early PowerPC 
Mac days).

It was stricter than most compilers -- perhaps even causing some 
warnings to be errors.  I understand how this can cause issues building 
open source software, but for my own development I always appreciated 
the compiler being stricter than others -- it made porting a lot 
easier.  [I now use Java and am dismayed at what C compilers let you get 
away with.]
