I'd say this is overkill, as it hides *all* warning, not just warnings from
not found 'windres' on Windows. Say, if you specify
"C:/not-existing-path/bin/cl.exe" as path to msvc on Windows, I think it's
still better to issue warning.

On the other hand, in case of compiler you'll get "command not found" error
from shell anyway, so maybe we can try going with "no warnings unless
--debug-conguration" login for a while.
