I thought I was following directions... What should I be using?


>From "Building the ARM THUMB development tools for Windows",

GNU Compiler Collection
The GNU Compiler Collection web site contains plenty of information
about installing and using GCC. Unfortunately the most recent official
release (GCC 2.95.2) is not capable of supporting eCos for ARM THUMB. A
snapshot of the GCC development sources should be used to obtain the
most up-to-date compiler with new features and bug fixes.

You don't get warnings when you use the recommended compiler. You do get
warnings when you use some other compiler.

I guess that makes it your problem!
