Default Bug#451707: Acknowledgement (gdc-4.1: gdc is confused by variadic arguments in (C) mode)

retitle 451707 D should send foo[] as a foo* when used in a variadic argument in extern(C) context
severity 451707 important

I understood the issue: when the "-c" argument is sent as the first
argument of the variadic part, D sends a char[] and not a char*, meaning
that it puts 2, "-c" on the stack, which confuses the C.

I believe that D should do the implicit cast in that case, as it'll
break a _lot_ of programs using C APIs and variadic arguments in very
subtle ways.
