I do not have a github account.  I had one but removed it.  (They
did want to take cash, only credit cards, but i wanted to pay.)
I like repo.or.cz?.  Yes i do.  But that aspect i never used yet.
(Back in 201? i have not used it, they said it was running on
a single small box, and they had a lot of projects already.  That
somehow counteracts my chaotic style of working, with many pushes
and rebases.  Thanks to git.)

But i actually did, starting with [1], there you can see anything,
from running into the dead end of not being able to create
a running binary on AlpineLinux/Musl to a working solution.  It
actually compiled the binary that sends this message i think.

That i do not understand.  Messages [2] and [3] show that the
stdarg.h shipped with TinyCC is not picked because my
$C_INCLUDE_PATH contains the entire set of system include paths,
not only user specific extensions.  Therefore the {B} of tcc may
be the first of sysincludes as much as you wanna, it will not be
picked.  Please do not ask me why i include all paths in this
variable, i have forgotten.  But tcc should deal with this!

I do not understand.  Sorry.  To me this sounds as if the changes
look fine to you.  I think Rich Felker has done well with
providing the additional typedef __isoc_va_list so that the void*
is sufficient.  But of course it must be ensured that the correct
stdarg.h is found, this is why it is there.  I personally like it
very much that there is no jungle of preprocessor statements, let
alone non-indented such sort.  It is what it is.  No need for
a _musl.h.  Of course those paths including {B} could be prepended
to the normal user includes in addition to the sysinclude ones,
instead of going over the new VIP includes.  If you like that
better, i can do it like that.  Or rename sysincludes to
tccincludes, which would be even better.  That latter i would

Thanks for pushing the -enable-new-dtags change back then.
