Well, --disable-warnings doesn't work.  -pedantic is (apparently)  
hardcoded in places and causes some tests (like the checks for the various
random functions) to fail.  These failed tests result in 'conflicting
prototypes' and dcop fails to compile (and I'm sure everything else would
as well).

Hardcoding C/CXXFLAGS is a bad idea.
