I don't have the man-page handy, but I seem to recall that the Sun compiler
doesn't define __STDC__ unless you add options -- that's what lynx is using
to trigger the stdarg.h/varargs.h (until I add some configure stuff to get
the right version).

-- I can't simply test if the header is there (I know, at least, that
   HP distributes a nicely-broken combination of compiler and headers, so
   I have to add in a compile-test ;-).

Anyway - I had time today to test my changes on the SunOS K&R compiler, so
I'm reasonably confident of them now.
