Re: Trouble with stdarg on ia64

It was ported to Alpha (I can't remember whether I ever used it myself on

that this ever worked...

"Ported to Alpha" doesn't necessarily mean "ported to 64-Bit".
Remember: The DEC linker has/had a "magic" switch to turn all
addresses into 32-Bit. This particular feature wasn't available
in earlier Linux/Alpha versions.
