make 4.2.1 builds with compilers that default to strict c89, but make 4.3 does
not due to use of variable argument macros (a c99 feature) in lib/verify.h.

specifically, i am using the sgi mipspro 7.4.3 compiler on irix 6.5.22.

please consider either returning to c89 compliance when compiled without
support for later standards, or officially requiring C99 and using an
autotools macro such as AC_PROG_CC_C99 to ensure that necessary flags for c99
compilation are passed to the compiler.
