Does it fail to "make install", does it fail to "make check", or does it 
even fail to "make"?

You've only quoted warning messages, but in case of a failure you should 
also get some genuine error messages; can you post those?

According to the internerds, the warning messages you get seem to 
indicate that your development tools are outdated; people suggest 
updating those, and in that context the followng commands are mentioned 
(either of these may work):

     xcode-select --install

     brew upgrade gcc

     brew upgrade gcc49

(Presumably the `49` in `gcc49` is a version number so you may need to 
adapt this to your case.)

Also, you seem to be using gcc, while we're using clang in our tests 
instead, which to the best of my knowledge is the "native" C/C++ 
compiler on Mac OS X. (IIRC we did have trouble getting gcc to work, too.)

You should be able to set this up by invoking

     export CXX=clang++

before running the `./configure` script. Alternatively, I think it 
should also be possible to pass `CXX=clang++` as a parameter to the 
`./configure` script.
