Please do not top post on this list.

There is a bullet point in "General Compilation Instructions":

"During the compilation of most packages, there will be several warnings 
that scroll by on the screen. These are normal and can safely be ignored. 
These warnings are as they appear—warnings about deprecated, but not 
invalid, use of the C or C++ syntax. C standards change fairly often, and 
some packages still use the older standard. This is not a problem, but 
does prompt the warning."

That goes for configure too.
