[Is this the right place for ppc.rpm bugs?]

Given host realhost and missing file no-file, "rcp no-file
realhost:." fails with a seg fault on ppc.

The problem is that the error function calls vfprintf
multiple times for a single va_start.  On ppc (at least),
vfprintf has side effects on va_list, and the second
vfprintf is no longer using the same args.

Reproducible on glibc-0.961212, MkLinux, rsh-0.10-2b.ppc.rpm
or rsh-0.10-24.ppc.rpm.

I'll submit a patch.  You should be able to find it at the
above URL.
