WARNS level 0 is the current default.  All Ulrich's patch does is
reverse the logic so that WARNS is 6 by default and anything that didn't
already set WARNS explicitly sets it to 0, so the actual value of WARNS
in each Makefile is the same as before.  This is orthogonal to actually
fixing whatever doesn't currently build at a higher WARNS level.
