Topic: Configure script setting -Werror flag
I had an issue configuring my wolfssl/wolfcrypt sources after adding them to a git repository. The compilation failed, as the configure would set the "-Werror" flag. After a long search for the cause and many "WTFs" I figured out that the configure script checks for a .git folder to exist in the top directory (presumably for non-release builds), whereupon, apparently, the -Werror flag is set:
if test -e ".git"; then : ac_cv_vcs_system="git" fi
(configure, line 24359)
In hope that this helps anyone who encounters this issue.
