There used to be a lot of OS conditionals in the waf,  Most got ripped
out as host detection got better.

In the specific case of -Wsign-conversion, it illuminates a bug in
Bison, so prolly not a good idea to have on by default.  It will just
annoy and confuse people.

I thinking -Wsign-comparison would be good with 'waf --enable-debug, 
but not for normal builds.

The debug part of waf needs works, in many places.

Define clean?  If something does not build, then buildbot fails.  
otherwise it passes.  There is the known bug that test failures do
not fail cause buildbot fail.  I think someone already filed an issue
on it.
