I have found that generally the warnings are harmless in 1.86; it's the
errors that kill the build. You have done a great job in eliminating all the
warnings in the later builds. I guess this is progression.

Note that even after adding the pragmas, there are still around 20-25 or so
warnings which will be generated elsewhere in the codebase.  The snort
administrators are aware of these warnings, have investigated them (ie.
stuff like long -> short without typecast, or unsigned -> signed without
typecast), and have chosen not to update the codebase to remove the
