va_arg() is, va_arg on a short isn't.

It's the correct fix for that problem. There may be other problems. I don't
know roxen, and I don't have a powerpc to test it on.

Why haven't I done what? NMUed your package? Because I don't have a
powerpc nor do I know anything about roxen. Answered any of your requests
for help?  Because I haven't seen any. The bug report log for #81648 is
completely empty apart from the initial report, eg.
