Well, I get compile-time warning messages when doing a buildworld
of current, but nothing actually breaks.  I do not do much of
anything fancy with resetting WARNS, so my guess is that the
"default buildworld settings" will not run into a show-stopping
error due to these loose ends.

I think part of it is that some things (like 'lpr' for instance)
were changed to use 'BDECFLAGS' instead of some compiler-specific
list of flags (in -stable lpr has '-Wall -Wnested-externs
-Wmissing-prototypes -Wno-unused -Wredundant-decls

That probably sounds like a step up in warning level, except that
we also removed BDECFLAGS from /etc/defaults/make.conf.  In fact,
there is no /etc/defaults/make.conf in current, it was moved to
/usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf.  So I expect that most people
(including me) have effectively gone to compiling with zero special
CWARNFLAGS parameters for those modules.

I'll make a wild guess and say that it's possible that Bruce might
have some BDECFLAGS set in his /etc/make.conf, so he is probably
seeing more warning messages than the average person...
