Heck no. It is difficult enough to build VLC without -Werror.

A warning is a warning is a warning. According to the GCC documentation 
itself, "warnings are made optional because GCC is not smart enough to see 
all the reasons why the code might be correct despite appearing to have an 
error". And my experience is that other compilers are much worse.
