Yes, that's the purpose of the test according to m4/curl-compilers.m4 where it
is located but I'm not sure why we need to fail the build because of this.
That's why I asked Yang about this since I believe he added that check so he
would be a good person to elaborate on its purpose.

I'm thinking it may be far from easy to find such a compiler flag, or possibly
even impossible.

You can easily just comment out CURL_CHECK_COMPILER_PROTOTYPE_MISMATCH from, re-run autoconf and then run configure again and that failure
shouldn't bother you.
