Hm, I'm continuing to think about it.

Ooops, sorry!

Yes, I agree. Part of the problem is that I don't have the time to test
it with GCC as well. :-/

The big advantage of getting it to compile with Norcroft as well is the
fact that the code gets cleaner and more portable because Norcroft is
pickier about things than GCC is. You have added switches to make GCC
more verbose, but Norcroft is still more talkative.
