I haven't updated those recently,
but in a quick check, don't see a new problem.

add --enable-warnings

I seem to recall someone mentioning this recently: clang without any
options will warn about things that gcc does not.  My macros are designed
to filter/amend/whatever when warnings are wanted.

Of course doing that will show some warnings that you didn't see before,
but I work on those, to reduce them :-)
