This is not OK (although I haven't read the thread).  Some warning are not
detected as such, if the return value of the compiler is zero.  This can
be fixed only with the compiler having a non-zero exit value, which means,
it has to convert the warnings to errors.  If you had issues with some
functions the test should be fixed somehow, instead of turning off the

either "64" or "".  The test for when to set this suffix to "64" doesn't
work on all systems.  I have repeatedly talked about the fix, but neither
me not anybody else came around implementing it.
