Hi Ken,

these new warnings are due to warning flags added to CFLAGS (for gcc).
Basically they are all harmless, although I'd like to avoid some of them (in
particular 'implicit declaration') from programs/libraries maintained in the
TL tree.

Some of the warning come from C code generated by bison/flex and are quite
hard to avoid. Others come from teckit which I'd prefer not to touch --
although Jonathan might be inclined to fix them.
