Drat. I didn’t see that price was used later on. Fixed in maint, I’ll merge that to master soon…

But first I went to look to see why I didn’t get the error. That’s a pretty important one, obviously. Turns out that we rely on GNOME_COMPILER_WARNINGS to set that, and those results are either getting lost or never integrated into CFLAGS. I’ve yet to determine whether it’s just my build environment or a change in Gnome. I’ll merge to master after I get *that* sorted.
