Ok I will investigate non-vararg prototype for xdrproc_t

So far I only found one place where an xdrproc_t was called, which was
using two arguments, so (XDR *, const char *) would work fine. I don't
know what the point of providing a function with three args would be,
unless it is possible to replace the handler that does the callback.
