well, for us, it should also work with --enable-strict (default in CVS
version as that is meant for developers --- and as a reminder to us to
produce clean code ... ;-)) --- but for "users", --disable-strict (default
in tarballs) is indeed just fine.

for which part did you call `make check`?
for "MonetDB" (Common) there are indeed not tests; neither for
(MonetDB/)"java"; only for clients, MonetDB4, MonetDB5, sql, geom,
pathfinder, template there are tests and `make check` should work --- be
aware though, that some tests are known to fail on some platforms ...

No problem --- in fact, `make check` is not "mendatory" for getting it to
work --- just `make && make install` (or use monetdb-install.sh) and then
try to run `Mserver` (MonetDB4) or `mserver5` (MonetDB5) as a very basic
