Follow-up Comment #5, bug #33034 (project make):

I'm not trying to be flip, but what do you do when you upgrade to a new
version of the compiler and older code no longer builds correctly due to more
stringent requirements?  I see this in code all the time (not GNU make) with
new versions of GCC for example.

I really am not interested in changing all the error messages to give details
about which version of GNU make that error was introduced, and I'm also not
interested in adding flags to every version of GNU make which allows for
backward-compatibility with older versions.  That seems completely unwieldy
from a development and maintenance point of view.
