You're probably including a header file (most likely stdarg.h) with a
line like

#define va_list __builtin_va_alist

with the expectation that the compiler will do something magic with that
special identifier.  Since the compiler is complaining about it, it's
probably a mismatch between the header files and the compiler.

It looks like the server comes with its own implementation (my-stdarg.h)
which presumably configure might choose to use.  If you were using that
before, that would explain why it used to compile...
