Looks like a GCC bug where

   x = y = 0;

is converted to

   x = (y = 0) != 0;

and the magic that does this inside the compiler causes the warning.

We should add a configure check to only add -Werror on compilers newer
than X (for example X could leave out GCC 4.5), so that this patch can
be reapplied.
