D.gnu - Problems on Linux PPC

Ok, I don't know if this is old news.. but anyways :)

I have finally figured out what goes wrong when trying to compile gdc on 
PowerPC-Linux. This system use different va_list handling than e.g. Mac 
OS X, (and x86 Linux as well).

The difference is arrays v.s. void*

I have taken a fast look at the sources of gdc, but have not found any 
way to patch this. Any ideas?

The script i provided in the list before is otherwise working well on 
powerpc as well.. Besides that it stops when compiling libphobos because 
of va_list incompatibility.

Would be nice to have the compiler working on my laptop as well :)

David said when he released the latest GDC that the next release would have Linux/PPC support, so we're waiting. -- Carlos Santander Bernal
