Comment 1 Gerald Pfeifer freebsd_committer 2017-02-11 19:29:10 UTC
-Werror may not be a good idea for this port (not the least since GCC 7
is going to add many more new warnings).

Created attachment 179881 [details]

The ipxe update in bug #216329 builds fine with gcc6 with -Werror.  Can't speak for gcc7 though.

But I'm fine with not using -Werror for this port.  Adding NO_WERROR=1 to MAKE_FLAGS should do it.

Thanks. Landed. Builds fine with lang/gcc7-devel as well.
