how do I fix this header conflict?

In there is a line that adds the flag "-pedantic-errors"
to CXXFLAGS.  On Mac OS X, this causes issues when configure gets very
long and the c preprocessor gets out-of-bounds errors:

configure:32891: checking for initgroups
configure:32942: g++ -c -Wnon-virtual-dtor -Wno-long-long -Wundef -Wall
  -pedantic -W -Wpointer-arith -Wwrite-strings -O2 -fno-exceptions
  -fno-check-new -fno-common -pedantic-errors  -DQT_THREAD_SUPPORT
  -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/opt/local/include -I/opt/local/include/qt3
  -no-cpp-precomp -fno-common >&5 line number out of range
configure:32945: $? = 1

When this happens, configure assumes I don't have the function and
enables the version in libkdefakes instead.  This causes conflicts when
the kdefakes version gets in the way of the version in the system

In file included from dcopserver.cpp:39:
/usr/include/unistd.h:215: error: declaration of C function `int
   initgroups(const char*, int)' conflicts with
../config.h:810: error: previous declaration `int initgroups(const
   char*, unsigned int)' here
make[4]: *** [dcopserver.lo] Error 1

The thing that fixes it for me is to change "-pedantic-errors" to
"-pedantic", but last time I asked about this I got a lot of backlash.
Since that is not a proper solution, what is?
