I am sure nobody here is against compiling FFmpeg 
without warnings but I wonder if it is possible 
and if it is worth the effort.

Not related to your actual issue:
It has shown more success in the past to send 
actual patches instead of asking for opinions 

I suspect that asserts in not speed-relevant 
code where it is very difficult to understand 
if an array access gets out-of-bound or not 
would be acceptable (but that may only be me).
