Good question.  I think it is, but maybe for a very old reason that nobody can remember?

It's because we don't want people downloading a 3.0 release then using a different compiler version that we don't use on our buildbots and then getting a warning-turned-error.

IOW it's turned off in the CMakefile(?) so users don't hit compile errors (from warnings) in the released product.  I don't know if it's possible to get the buildbot to turn it on again in our builds (i.e., only in our buildbot builds).
