I haven't seen this, but IIRC some distros enable _FORTIFY_SOURCE  by
default, which changes which unused-result warnings are emitted.

Does the appended work for you?

I wonder if we should enable _FORTIFY_SOURCE for development builds.

Oops, sorry for the breakage.  Tom's fix LGTM.

I think that enabling _FORTIFY_SOURCE can only do some good.

Yes, this patch fixed the build problem I was having.  I was building
on Ubuntu 16.04 so I guess that one of the platforms that enables
_FORTIFY_SOURCE by default.
