Unfortunately runing the build in another tree is not the same as 
running it in
the GnuCash tree...

So long as you commit from a gnucash tree built with -Werror, that's all I'm
asking.  I don't particular care how you achieve that, but commits to gnucash
should only happen after gnucash was built with -Werror.


PS: I use FC3.
PPS: For MacOS you might want to run the on Linux and then move the
sourcetree over and build it there.  Yes, it's more of a pain that way, but it
would solve the immeidate issue.  We really don't have many devs that 
work from
CVS on MacOS.  Most mac devs work from the tarballs (generally to create the
fink package).
