I'd like to mark /gfx/thebes as FAIL_ON_WARNINGS, but we currently have a Mac-only build warning (treated as an error if I add FAIL_ON_WARNINGS) for using a deprecated API in gfxPlatformMac.cpp:

        if (!FSpMakeFSRef(&location->u.fileLoc.spec, &fsRef)) {
/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.6.sdk/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/CarbonCore.framework/Headers/Files.h:7501:15: note: 'FSpMakeFSRef' declared here
extern OSErr  FSpMakeFSRef(const FSSpec *source, FSRef *newRef)                    AVAILABLE_MAC_OS_X_VERSION_10_0_AND_LATER_BUT_DEPRECATED_IN_MAC_OS_X_VERSION_10_5;

Looks like the call to this function (FSpMakeFSRef) was added in bug 16769.
FWIW, a quick google search turns up:
...which says:

OS: Linux → Mac OS X
Hardware: x86_64 → All
Can't you just turn off the deprecation warnings on the Mac in gfx/thebes? :-)

> There is no replacement function.

This probably means it'll be some work to find a way not to use FSpMakeFSRef.

> Deprecated in OS X v10.5

And this probably means Apple isn't really serious about getting rid of it (since it's still present in 10.8).
We could turn it off...

or, perhaps better: we can could globally make -Wdeprecated-declarations non-fatal, for warnings-as-errors directories (like we already do for the maybe-uninitialized warnings, which have lots of false positives).

So then, when Apple (or whoever) deprecates a function, we'll get a warning about it but it won't break our --enable-warnings-as-errors builds (e.g. TBPL).
The code that uses FSpMakeFSRef is part of our ColorSync support, and the relevant function that's (potentially) giving us an FSSpec is itself deprecated:

So the way forward here, I think, must be to update our ColorSync code to use more modern APIs; then the need for FSpMakeFSRef will disappear.

FWIW, I filed bug 833405 on this. Leaving this bug here to cover Comment 4 etc. Carry on. :)
