what happened to stdarg.h or varargs.h on ubuntu

0 votes

I just tried to build a package from source, and it died looking for one of these headers (stdarg.h or varargs.h) and not finding either one.

It's been a long time since I wrote code to use these myself, but I cannot believe they just disappeared. However, I cannot find them on my system. I have the usual dev tools, or thought I did. What am I missing?

On 13.04 I have /usr/lib/gcc/i686-linux-gnu/4.7/include/stdarg.h supplied by libgcc-4.7-dev

If you run apt-file search stdarg.h, you will see which packages may provide it. If you have not installed apt-file then you need to install it and run apt-file update first.
