I have looked into this. In the latest SDK (2003 SP1), Microsoft has
changed the include structure; there are no separate amd64
subdirectories anymore. Then, cl.exe was picking up the wrong
stdarg.h (the one of VS 2003), which would not work for AMD64.

I have corrected that in vsextcomp, but I will need to check a few
more things before releasing it.
