ANSI C says va_start() takes 2 args. <varargs.h> (on those platforms
that have it at all) defines an older, non-ANSI-compliant version of
the va_foo macros. What you want to be including is <stdarg.h>.
Dunno why src/include/c.h is not including that automatically on your
platform, but that's what to look at.
I've suspected for some time that the conditional include of <varargs.h>
near the bottom of c.h is dead code, if not actively pernicious. But
without access to a platform where
#if defined(sun) && defined(__sparc__) && !defined(__SVR4)
applies, I can't be sure whether to rip it out or not.
