That sounds good.

I think we have a good chance of making it work on MacOS with minimal
effort.  MinGW is probably going to be harder because sockets work
completely differently.  (nbdkit port to Windows was easier because we
don't expose the sockets through the nbdkit API.)

Hmm tricky.  I have always compiled on Linux with this flag myself.
But when I checked on *BSD I did not bother (since they often use
weird / out of date versions of GCC), and just ran the tests.  In fact
even the full tests don't always pass on *BSD.
