I think there was no special reason for this - I think it's really a
bug: the defintion of sanei_debug_init needs to be present for both
vararg and no-vararg macros.

Of course it would be possible - try to compile a programm with vararg
macros during configure, if it fails we don't have support for it.
Perhaps this information can be used in other programs to.
However, I'm still going to commit the change tommorow... I think this
wasn't a objection from you, Henning, was it?
