Feel free to suggest more :)

Since I set -W*error=*implicit-function-declaration, the implicit
function declaration warnings are treated as errors and then aborts the
build (unless one uses make -k of course).

We could downgrade this to a warning, but I think this is a problem
important enough to trigger an error.
