by "current" you mean 4.7.x ? or trunk ? i don't think this matters all that
much -- certainly anyone who packages binutils configures it with --disable-
werror. in Gentoo, we never let a package build with -Werror precisely
because of this sort of thing: newer gcc warns in new and creative ways, as
often times do other architectures.
