Yes, i was using oprofile 0.9.2cvs. I can provide the code. The -Werror is enabled by default.
i have also been having trouble running it with trying to debug a executable program. i used the opcontrol to tell it the image,start,dump,stop then i used opreport -l <image>. i couldn't get the sample data. i tried opannotate and that didn't work either.
i have had better luck with gprof.

i am using 188.8.131.52 from linux-mips.org with gcc 3.4.3

You didn't mention the oprofile version, the gcc version, or the kernel
version, which are the important bits here. I can see from the error
messages that you have gcc-3.4.3, and a montavista kernel.
I tried oprofile-0.9.2. I was unable to get -Werror used in the
compiler. Looking at the configure script, I see that -Werror is
disabled unless you have a snapshot from the cvs tree. Not even
--enable-werror can turn it on. I'm guessing that you are using the cvs
This looks like a bug in the gcc that you are using. I can't reproduce
it on other systems, but I can reproduce it on a similar MontaVista
system. I can't reproduce it with later FSF gcc releases on the same
MontaVista system. It isn't immediately obvious what changed to fix
