Perhaps it is worth considering gcc -ansi -pedantic as the standard
command line options for gcc. Some of these problems would be minimized.

By placing all assembler code that's inlined as part of kaffe with
macros inside #ifdef __GNUC__ ... #else #error need to implement asm for
XXX #endif that problem can be pushed onto the person doing the porting.
