Just re-built and the warning is gone.  Closing report.

The shared-fcns.h file duplicates a few functions from liboctave or libinterp so that we don't have to link the main programs with those libraries.  The function that triggers the warning is used by one of the main programs but not by the cli version.  I checked in the following changeset:

Recent builds now produce the following warning about an unused function:

src/shared-fcns.h:174:1: warning: ‘std::__cxx11::string prepend_octave_home(const string&)’ defined but not used [-Wunused-function]

The function prepend octave_home() exists in both src/shared-fcns.h and in libinterp/corefcn/defaults.cc.  There are a number of other functions which exist in both places.  I don't know what the intent is so I have not tried to fix this.
