It seems from that discussion that strings can contain MOST_POSITIVE_FIXNUM 
bytes.
Also, that va_arg bug really needs fixing.  So I plan to install the following
patch after some more testing.  This assumes va_copy exists, which may affect
the Windows port, but a one-line macro should suffice if it doesn't have
va_copy already.

+       Use C99's va_copy to avoid undefined behavior on x86-64 GNU/Linux.

        * Makefile.in (GNULIB_TOOL_FLAG): Add --conditional-dependencies.
        This new gnulib-tool option saves 'configure' the trouble of
        checking for strtoull when strtoumax exists.
