(13) make

(14) Warning about -fstrict-aliasing in guestfs_get_default_main_loop.

I'm certain this can be ignored.

(15) Lots of warnings about -fstrict-aliasing in rpcgen-generated code.

Ignore these for now.  We had the same errors in libvirt for a long
time with no apparent effect on code generation.

(16) Missing futimens function in do_touch (previously reported bug).


(17) fish.c: Implicit declaration of `isspace'.


(18) In OCaml bindings, implicit declaration of `CAMLreturnT'.


(19) In Ruby bindings, implicit declaration of `RARRAY_LEN'.
