That's fine for GCC, but if we switch to "-I" we'll probably get other
warnings. Of course the reason it probably causes problems is that it
doesn't seem to be a well tested part of GCC :-(

I've seen that one but I was under the impression that it was not related at
all to -isystem. I've seen that warning on the darwin-tools.jam file I've
