Well, I am almost certain what the problem is :)

I think that you have a 32bit OS (well, the ./configure logs could tell
me that). I and the WINE's testbot builder run 64bit OSes, the people
from bug 20395 (also a person in #winehq) that compiled and ran the
patch successfully most likely also run 64bit OSes, thus 64bit version
of gcc by default.

The issue is on i386, where a certain include-file combination that is
used is hitting this "expected declaration specifiers or
‘...’" bug for __ms_va_list.

I wrote a small test-case patch, that should fail to compile using 32bit
gcc -
If it fails, it's most likely a WINE bug and should be filed to bugzilla.

As a solution to workaround that, I will add those unused include
statements (as is a similar story with user.h) for it compile on i386;
will submit once I've finished some new features.

Thanks for discovering this :)
