That's what I normally do. Just put


somewhere in your code. It will get rid of the warning and generates
no object code as far as I can tell if you're using -O3 optimisation
flag, which you should be using for numerical coding anyways.

Alternatively, instead of using -Wall, you can use
-W$(each-individual-warning) as a parameter to g++. (man gcc to see
what warnings -Wall turns on, and just mention each warning
individually instead of all at once; put them in your Makefile).

By the way, are you actually coding in C++? If so, this is
interesting, because it pleases me a lot to see that there is real
demand for a C++ version of the GSL. I put an application for doing
this for Google Summer of Code. I should know by April 11 if GNU and
Google think that this is a good project. A C++ class instead of rigid
function signatures with void* should be better equipped handle better
unused arguments. :-)
