I don't know why this message shows up in the current version, but I installed
the 2.8.1 compiler on one of my unix systems and it's nice enough to mention
that I might want to use the option: '-fguiding-decls'. Sure enough, no
warnings. This also works with the egcs-2.91.57 compiler I'm using on my pc.
I still don't understand what changed but this'll at least get around it.
