This specific compiler did not output anything for this case.

That case was a misuse of a macro. Here's another example, where the problem 
is inside the macro.

Option A:
qmetatype.h:1785:43: error: conversion to ‘int’ from ‘uint {aka unsigned int}’ 
may change the sign of the result
         const int tNameLen = qstrlen(tName); \
qmetatype.h:1913:1: note: in expansion of macro 

Option B:
qmetatype.h:1913:1: error: implicit conversion changes signedness: 'uint' (aka 
'unsigned int') to 'const int'
qmetatype.h:1785:30: note: expanded from macro 
        const int tNameLen = qstrlen(tName); \
                  ~~~~~~~~   ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~
