POSIX 2001 specifies that va_copy
(http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/functions/va_copy.html) is
defined by stdarg.h. However, when compiling with -std=c89
-D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=200112L this does not happen. I've encountered this in 4.3.2,
but a quick peek in svn makes it look this this is current.

I'll attach the source and preprocessed output.

Command line:
gcc -std=c89 -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=200112L -Wall -c no_va_copy.c -save-temps
no_va_copy.c: In function ‘copy_va_list’:
no_va_copy.c:8: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘va_copy’
