If you look at the corresponding source, you'll see that this is clearly intentional. I don't know if there is a way to suppress the warning. I think there is a gcc intrinsic to retrieve the stack pointer, which could be used when compiling with gcc. But I'm not sure that uglifying the code is a good way to deal with such issues.
As an immediate fix, there is presumably a way to tell the build NOT to treat warnings as errors?
