What is the purpose of checking for stdarg.h?

As the commit message says: "... and add a check for stdarg.h so readline headers
use proper rl_message declaration." I thought that's enough details, but
obviously it's not as you're asking :-)


I skipped that part of the commit message. I did not expect that other
checks would be influenced by this AC_CHECK_HEADERS.

The thing is that there's a following code in readline.h:

#if defined (USE_VARARGS) && defined (PREFER_STDARG)
extern int rl_message (const char *, ...)  __attribute__((__format__ (printf, 1, 2)));
#else
extern int rl_message ();
#endif

The latter generates the described warning and the former does not.

PREFER_STDARG and USE_VARARGS come from another readline header,
rlstdc.h, and it contains the following:

#if defined (__STDC__) && defined (HAVE_STDARG_H)
#  define PREFER_STDARG
#  define USE_VARARGS
#else
#  if defined (HAVE_VARARGS_H)
#    define PREFER_VARARGS
#    define USE_VARARGS
#  endif
#endif

So we need to have HAVE_STDARG_H defined to have a proper declaration.

How do you like if I rephrase it like "... and add a check for stdarg.h so
we have HAVE_STDARG_H defined that's needed by the readline headers to use
proper rl_message declaration"?


Yes, that is clear enough even for me :)
