AFAIK -O3 is a bit unsafe in FreeBSD.  I know that some warnings don't
work correctly in GCC though, so `-O -Wall' shoule be fine most of the
time.  To be sure I have to check with teh manual of GCC to see if this
has changed in 3.4.x versions though.

WARNS=1 includes -Wall, so you're fine with just WARNS=1.  Higher levels
of WARNS enable other sorts of warnings too.  The file in
/usr/share/mk contains the exact set of these options, i.e. WARNS=3 is
equivalent to:

    CFLAGS="-Wall -Wno-format-y2k -Wreturn-type -Wcast-qual \
	-Wwrite-strings -Wswitch -Wshadow -Wcast-align"

Yeah, it makes sense :)
