On an alpha-linux (RH 6.0) and a second (RH 6.1), compiling fails in
printutils.c, line 424 (if (!arg)) { ....) with the fatal error message
that arg is neither an array nor a pointer. arg is declared in the
function parameter list as type va_list. If this is va_list ass defined in
glib.h (/usr/include/glib.h), it is indeed a pointer (or an array of
pointers?). (I did not try to back track through all the includes.)

Other details available upon request.

The same source compiled cleanly on an RH 6.1.
