Which flags are giving the warnings? I see both clang and cparser have
a -Wunknown-warning-option which gives warnings for unknown warning
options. I believe it's on by default, and could be turned off, but
using -Werrror=unknown-warning-option seems like the best thing to do
(so they get rejected). I don't see a way to disable warnings for
other unrecognized options, though.
