Using -isystem instead of -I - but that means rewriting the output of

// save diagnostic state
#pragma GCC diagnostic push

// turn off the specific warning. Can also use "-Wall"
#pragma GCC diagnostic ignored "-Wunused-but-set-variable"

#include <boost/uuid/uuid.hpp>
#include <boost/uuid/uuid_generators.hpp>

#include <boost/lexical_cast.hpp>

// turn the warnings back on
