Alexandre, is this patch ok to install in GCC?

I'm afraid not.

Out of curiosity, why is it so bad to print potential warnings twice given that the file really is being compiled twice? I would have thought this would have the benefitial property of making the warnings twice as annoying!

But anyway:

Perhaps we should redirect the output of the second run to a file, and
print it only if compilation fails?  This would be much easier to
implement, and guarantee the property of only displaying the output
the second time when it differs from the first time (because otherwise
we wouldn't have gotten to the second run, as you wrote yourself).

Sounds reasonable to me.
