I can build on FreeBSD/gcc 4.2 using --with-warnings-as-errors without 
problems.  However, on my Linux/gcc 4.1 box, there are a few warnings 
left that we need to get rid of (I'll try to work on it today).  Then 
we'll be able to run the Unix/OS X buildbots with 
--with-warnings-as-errors like the Windows build.

The Windows build actually defaults to making warnings errors already, 
but I'm hesistant to do it yet on the Unix builds until we iron out 
warnings on all the platforms/gcc versions.  Non-gcc builds are never 
given -Werror by the way.  On Unix, most directories are built with 
-Werror when using the configure option --with-warnings-as-errors except 
epan/dissectors, which has a few thousand warnings from the ASN1 
auto-generated dissectors that we still need to clear up.  After fixing 
the Linux/gcc

In summary, We're almost there on Unix.. :)
