May I suggest not using -Wtraditional ?
When I compile vlc, I'm now flooded with silly messages like:

warning: suggest not using #elif in traditional C
warning: suggest hiding #error from traditional C with an indented #
warning: traditional C ignores #define with the # indented
warning: traditional C rejects automatic aggregate initialization
warning: traditional C rejects string concatenation

I really don't see what this flag adds anyway as there is no point in 
supporting pre-standard C compilers.
