Yes I eventually found out about the maintainer mode by searching
for where -Werror is coming from, that's how I ended up using the
tarball (because there is no maintainer mode there).

Didn't know about README.git though - this does have a lot of info
indeed, thanks!

FYI when you build from Git, the "maintainer mode" is enabled by
default.  This includes extra runtime checks which make "make" slower,
and it also includes extreme compiler warning options, and also adds
the -Werror to turn those into failures (when you're using autotools).

You can disable this mode, even when compiling from Git, if you need
to.  Instructions for building from Git should be available in the
README.git file (this is only part of a Git checkout, it's not
available in the release).

However as Eli says it's usually not a big deal to apply patches from a
source release, to the Git repository ourselves.
