This warning (seen even "non-Jumbo" JtR) is just a red herring from gcc. 
If you revert to gcc-4.7 you don't see it, while gcc-4.8 and 4.9 (if 
memory serves me) show it. Nothing to worry about. I actually use 4.7 
most of the time just for this reason (I'm not aware of any performance 
benefits of the newer ones).
