Probably not, unless they build with >/dev/null, or the -s option to make which is essentially the same thing. We could recommend this. I'm not sure non-gnu make will understand -s, does anyone know?

We should also try to get rid of as many other warnings as possible. Late gcc complains about a bunch of new stuff. It's a bit down on my to-do list to try to get rid of them (and anyone else wanting to do a few is very welcome).

I'm not sure what we could do that would be better than -s.
