Forgot to hit send on this, and probably this is only partially relevant
now, but here goes.

But the patch does affect cross-compilation for Windows on linux.

Unless restricted to a very small cross-section (say gcc x.y + linux) this
is going to cause a lot of grief. Note that every check run by configure
that succeeds with warnings will become mysterious error at build time.
There may be other unexpected failures too. -Werror is never fit for
production in my view. There is a reason why warnings are warnings.

Just my 2c.
