Eliminate unsightly warnings!

Compiler warnings getting you down? People complaining about all the “weird garbage” printed when they type make? Fear not — there's a solution!

A while ago I had occasion to build a particular (over)complicated project that had recently been ported from Windows to Unix. The Windows version spewed pages of warnings when building, but on Unix there was none of that — just an empty terminal with a helpful success message.

Wait a minute...

At the end of the makefile's default rule, I found this:

        echo Done building $(TARGET)!

I hope you wouldn't consider doing anything like that. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have so many warnings to look at...
