xview / olvwm / ... doesn't build on NetBSD/PPC.

At a technical level it is because the xview code assumes
that ``va_list'' is roughly ``void *va_list'' while, for the PPC
it is ``struct { ... } va_list[1]''.

Someone did most of the work by adding NO_CAST_VATOAV and
fixing everything that olvwm depended on.  It, unfortunatly,
still left clock and cmdtool and wasn't auto-enabled for PPC.

Try building xview on a machine that has the above.
I've patches to xview-config and xview-lib that largely fix this
(and a few other configury problems).
