Most of these "spurious" messages come from the Boostbook stylesheets: in
other words they are problems of our own making, and somehow we should try
to figure out which are errors (and terminate when they occur), and which
are warnings (and suppress them unless in some "verbose" mode).

Unfortunately Doxygen also emits a lot of messages we have no control over
