The general advice from the gnulib list is that using -Werror during the
duration of ./configure is unsupported.  There are a number of
gnulib-supplied configure tests that get the wrong answer if -Werror is
on too early, with no plans to fix those upstream in gnulib, so
downstream libvirt cannot control all the problems caused by adding
-Werror to CFLAGS before configure.  Rather, it's better to rely on the
./configure --enable-compile-warnings=error, which libvirt uses to probe
if -Werror works, then ensure that -Werror is used during the Makefile
when building sane code, but omitted during configure tests where the
code is intentionally hairy.
