I'd like to avoid adding more and more machine specific #ifdefs to that

I wonder if we could do something cleaner by letting the va-* files provide
an override for the type of __builtin_va_alist.

For example, we might consider having the va-* file conditionally define
__BUILTIN_VA_ALIST_TYPE or some similar variable to the right type, then
do something like:

#define __BUILTIN_VA_LIST_TYPE int
[ ... includes of various va-* files ... ]

#define va_dcl    __BUILTIN_VA_ALIST_TYPE __builtin_va_alist; __va_ellipsis

A va-* file that wanted to override could do
#define __BUILTIN_VA_LIST_TYPE long

Or something along those lines.

Other options?
