Well, I think these errors are part of the auto-discovering process of 
the functions supported by the libraries in the hosting OS (kind of 
`autoconf`for Python), so they can be considered 'normal'.

These ones are not errors, but warnings. While it should be desirable to 
avoid any warning during the compilation process, not many libraries 
fulfill this (but patches for removing them are accepted).
