Well LC_ALL=C is easy to add.

Ahhh... Is this because of a emitted-as-an-error-not-a-warning bug in Debian
gcc, on top of the more general lazily-detected-unrecognised-Wno-option

Well, tbh I'd rather get rid of unsupported -Wno- options in general, not
just where they are erroneously emitted as errors. Otherwise it will confuse
everyone that each time they get a compile warning they also get extra bogus
unrecognised option messages. That would be pretty crappy.
