You should be able to include standard headers (or at least, headers in
/usr/include) in any order, and <printf.h> includes <stdio.h>, which
then defines the correct types.

However, there is a problem in the gcc ports.  What happens, is that the
gcc port uses its *own* munged versions of stdio.h and stdarg.h, and
includes them instead of the system versions.  For example, the gcc 4.7
port has this "fixed" version of stdio.h:


which explicitly *disables* our declaration of __va_list (the type which
va_list is based on):

  typedef __va_list __not_va_list__;

For functions like vprintf(), it replaces __va_list by a GNU builtin
variant, for example:

  int      vprintf(const char * __restrict, __gnuc_va_list);

However, it does not properly declare the regular va_list type, and then
things break in interesting ways.

I think the ports should not attempt to "fix" our include files.
