You don't need stdarg.ph. If you look at sys/syslog.ph, which is where
this requirement appears to be coming from, you'll find it's actually a
bug in h2ph that includes some stuff that it doesn't need to include. You
can safely just delete the whole section out of sys/syslog.ph that tries
to include stdarg.ph.
h2ph handling is being actively worked on by the Perl folks at the moment.
It's likely to be drastically improved in the next major release.
