Thanks for the report.  Mmh.  Lully and faure are down, so I can't do some
tests for myself, but maybe you can help me out.

The redefinition looks like a system header problem, a conflict between the
glibc and gcc header files.  This might be related to gpgme defining
_GNU_SOURCE, so if compiling

#define _GNU_SOURCE 1
#include <stdarg.h>
#include <stdio.h>

produces the same warning, another bug has to be filed against either gcc or
glibc.  This is something I cannot test right now.  Maybe some more header
files or macros are necessary to trigger this bug, in the order they are
used in gpgme, but you should have no trouble finding out.

However, there is an actual bug in gpgme anyway.  Please try the following

        don't know the correct type.  Instead, run va_start and va_end
