Harmless noise from GCC 2.95.3.  This does not in any way affect the 
application, or prevent compilation.  Notice it says 'warning' not error, and 
compiling does not stop.

Use the port, /usr/ports/www/quanta - it's all taken care of for you, just 
'make install' or if you are using portupgrade 'portinstall quanta' 

You must use 'make' to install a port, if the port needs gmake to actually 
compile the program, the maintainers know this and it will use it.

The warning noise happens with a lot of programs, it's nothing to worry about 
at all.  It's awfully annoying, but nothing more.
