Much better than all those pragmas!  I still get one error though:

util.c:874:41: error: format specifies type 'int' but the argument has type 'size_t' (aka 'unsigned long') [-Werror,-Wformat]
    pm_asprintf(&str, _("Packages (%d):"), alpm_list_count(targets));
                                   ~~      ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I believe that should be %zd
