autobuild ignore system

I've just introduced a way to make specific compiler warnings to get ignored
by the autobuild system's warning-display and counter.

If a warning matches one of the listed regexes, it will not count as a warning
and will not be counted nor displayed red when a single log is viewed.

It is still to be considered experiemental, but I hope to be able to ignore
warnings we can't do anything about. Like on generated code (getdate.c) or if
the compiler can't be made to shut up about a code construct we _really_ have
to use and can't work around to hush the compiler.

The current list of ignores can be read here:

The regexes include line numbers and are very exact so that we won't be
matching wrong warnings.

This is not to be used to make it look like we build warning-free when we are
not, we should still fix compiler warnings the proper way as far as we
possibly can.
