Does -no-suppress do this?

I ran into a weird case today - trying to compile libvirt with CFLAGS
including -Wsuggest-attribute=3Dpure -fipa-pure-const produced a compile
failure, but no message.  It turns out that for the file in question,
libtool ended up compiling things twice, but gcc only warns when -fPIC
is not in effect (for some reason, the combination of fPIC and
-fipa-pure-const appears to not catch the warning, unless -O is also
present).

$ gcc -std=3Dgnu99 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I.. -I../gnulib/lib
-I../gnulib/lib -I../include -I../src/util -I../include -DIN_LIBVIRT
-I/usr/include/libxml2 -Wsuggest-attribute=3Dpure -fipa-pure-const -c
util/buf.c -fPIC -DPIC -o a.o

util/buf.c -o b.o

util/buf.c:242:1: warning: function might be candidate for attribute
=E2=80=98pure=E2=80=99 [-Wsuggest-attribute=3Dpure]

But because the warning only occurs during the second compilation, I end
up with no warning message:

$ make
make  all-am

  CC     libvirt_util_la-buf.lo
make[1]: *** [libvirt_util_la-buf.lo] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/remote/eblake/libvirt/src'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Proof that -O makes a difference:

-I../gnulib/lib -I../include -I../src/util -I../include -DIN_LIBVIRT

Any suggestions on how to make libtool display the compiler errors that
occur only when -fPIC is missing?  Or am I stuck not using
-fipa-pure-const without also passing -O?
