[theora-dev] gcc 3.2 warnings

What is strange in your log is that it does not catch the only case where a
variable is definately used without being initialized. It is


in scan.c, RowSadScan() method. The others look like bogus warnings.

What worries me is that VC at least catches lots of conversion warnings,
some with possible loss of data. Most are probably ok, but these:

'double' to '_int64'
'double' to '_int32'
'_int64' to 'long'
'_int32' to 'unsigned char'

look suspicious to me. Can anyone comment if these are ok, and the compiler
will do the right thing?
