With this, we should no longer land code that causes compiler warnings or code
style warnings as the CI will yell at us if we try.

I'm sure a few (most?) pull-requests now need to get rebased, but I think
that's a necessary price to pay. The upside is that they will also now get
checked much more critically and some of them will be get warnings to work on
- fully automatically.

'make checsrc' in the source root runs the style checker if you build with
configure. I might add a rule to do it automatically for --enable-debug builds
in a future. That's how I do it in curl and I find it convenient and really
helps to write code to stick to the style.

I would appreciate some help in generating the similar make target made for
cmake builds, as I still lack basic cmake skills... :-/
