This is not my experience.  In particular, the warning flags for Clang are
significantly different than the warning flags for GCC, giving rise to
logic like this to configure warnings used for maintainer builds:

 AS_IF([test x"$CLANG" = xyes],
        [-Weverything -Wno-cast-qual -Wno-disabled-macro-expansion -Wno-padded
         -Wno-sign-conversion -Wno-reserved-id-macro
         -Wno-tautological-pointer-compare -Wno-undef -Wno-unreachable-code
         -Wno-unreachable-code-return -Wno-unused-macros
            [WARNINGS_CFLAGS="${WARNINGS_CFLAGS} flag"])])],
        [-fstrict-overflow -fstrict-aliasing -Wall -Wextra -Wformat=2
         -Wformat-overflow=2 -Wformat-signedness -Wformat-truncation=2
         -Wnull-dereference -Winit-self -Wswitch-enum -Wstrict-overflow=5
         -Wmissing-format-attribute -Walloc-zero -Wduplicated-branches
         -Wduplicated-cond -Wtrampolines -Wfloat-equal
         -Wdeclaration-after-statement -Wshadow -Wpointer-arith
         -Wbad-function-cast -Wcast-align -Wwrite-strings -Wconversion
         -Wno-sign-conversion -Wdate-time -Wjump-misses-init -Wlogical-op
         -Wstrict-prototypes -Wold-style-definition -Wmissing-prototypes
         -Wmissing-declarations -Wnormalized=nfc -Wpacked -Wredundant-decls
         -Wrestrict -Wnested-externs -Winline -Wvla],
            [WARNINGS_CFLAGS="${WARNINGS_CFLAGS} flag"])])])
