Thanks, yes it was a complete list from gcc 4.6.3. Some of these were 
new to me, some others (NT and mscash1) I too saw today when using gcc 
4.4. These warnings tend to change with compiler version. I'll have a 
look at RAR and the others.

Jim, the NT and mscash1 warnings shown in the links above are from your 
Sparc fixes. The weird things are:

1) I just can not understand how they break aliasing rules (we cast to 

2) In NS_fmt_plug.c, *exactly* the same type of code is used, yet it 
does not produce warnings. Why?!
