First thing you should do is "make depend" and that should be replaced
by your own stdarg.h. Try it and let me know if the problem goes away
(it should, or we need to muck about with the rules). I *do* know that
if you don't have depend.mk, the Makefile isn't smart enough to know how
to create it. We should probably also make depend.mk depend upon all
the source files everywhere to get this to automagically work.
We probably shouldn't even have depend.mk in the CVS repository.
