Both parts are to keep GCC from whining. If you use -Wall and not
-Wno-parentheses, GCC assumes that you don't understand the precedence
rules of && and || and, so, complains. I've would up adopting a nasty file for CFLAGS just to get half decent warnings from GCC:

        -std=gnu99 \
        -pipe \
        -Wall \
        -Wno-parentheses \
        -Wno-missing-braces \
        -Wno-switch \
        -Wno-comment \
        -Wno-sign-compare \
        -Wno-uninitialized \
        -Wno-unused-parameter \
        -Wimplicit \
        -Wreturn-type \
        -Wtrigraphs \
        -Wstrict-prototypes \
        -Wmissing-prototypes \
        -Wpointer-arith \
