Ok cool, it looks like this is mostly already implemented.  First, I
was wrong about the version of gcc that supports these pragmas, it's
4.6 [1].  And gnulib already uses the diagnostic pragmas elsewhere, so
I mimicked the conditional format used in other files.  Finally, the
makefile conditional is already done in the coreutils configure.ac

I've attached a patch with the updates, let me know if you see any
further issues.
