In my experience it only works locally. I used to build Kopete with -Werror 
for a while, but that's not a flag one should commit.

An easy way to enable it for certain directories without having to touch files 
under revision control would be a nice gimmick for the new build system, but 
barring that you can always manually edit the generated Makefiles, or at 
least with the KDE 3.x build system you can.
