Note that, despite the name, -Wall doesn't give you anywhere
near "all" of the warnings you could use. I use this:

PKG_CFLAGS   := -fno-common -ffast-math \
  -W -Wall -Wshadow -Wcast-align -Wredundant-decls \
  -Wbad-function-cast -Wcast-qual -Wwrite-strings -Waggregate-return \
  -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes
#CFLAGS       := -O2 -s    # best warnings, compact, fast
CFLAGS       := -O1 -ggdb   # good debugger support

Without that -O2 you won't get all the warnings. The compiler
simply won't bother to do all the analysis needed.
