Now I have it working with « CFLAGS="-O2 -w" CC='gcc-4.9' », with
pictures still at:

The "-w" turns off warnings which is the easiest way to avoid -Werror
hell across GCC and Samba versions.

Fortunately, the -O2 tests make Samba 4.5 look even better, while 4.4
doesn't look as bad as it did
( for comparison).

The next trick I am working on is to run the tests multiple times and
use the fastest. Then I'll look at regular automatic testing of master.
