Hi Eric,

Thanks for your reply.

You are absolutely right, these were all (fairly obvious) portability bugs
in my code (as also pointed by others). Warnings were all related to the
pointer size and I got the compile error while assigning a va_list to
another (
I'm using va_copy to fix that one.

Thanks again,
