Hi Mychaela,

I can confirm freecalypso-tools compiles just fine on Debian 10 with
gcc 7.3, and target-utils with the new toolchain I provided. So that
should reassure everyone that no particular setup is required.
By the way, most of the warnings are about implicit conversion to int
and can be disabled this way:

find . -name Makefile -exec perl -i -pe 's/CFLAGS=/CFLAGS+=/g' {} \;
CFLAGS=-Wno-implicit make

This Makefile modification also allows passings flags that can be
useful for debugging, such as -g.

Only left are warnings about returning with no value, but that
particular warning cannot be disabled; the only way to silent it
I think would be to prefix those functions with void.
