In addition, more than once have I encountered cases in which there 
were actually problems caused by multiple symbols and the wrong one 
being used. A typical example is a package that uses ncurse, but has 
-lm before -lcurses. Since OS X' libm is just a link to the system 
lib, which also contains a curses implementation (with less features 
than ncurses, though), this caused the affected app to use a mix of 
function, which lead to a bus error. Had I disabled this warning, I 
might never have found it.
