OK, that's what I had assumed.

IIRC, it was some -Werror=.... flag. These are not supported by 
gcc-4.1.x, which had broken building RTEMS for the nios2.

In a perfect world, we would have to check the compiler for whether it 
accepts each single flag we have hard-coded somewhere, but this is 
unlikely to happen any time soon, because this is far from being trivial 
and because the benefits would be minor.
