This is generally a bad idea since you should use the headers which the
LibC is build against. To fix your problem with stdarg.h go please
check the following:

  gcc -print-search-dirs|sed -ne 's+^install: \(.*[^/][^/]*\)/\?+\1+p'

should deliver you the gcc directory. Starting from that directory, 
./include contains stdarg.h. I assume that the sed script probably does
not work on your BSD box. Perhaps you find a fix. You find the original
code in $(L4DIR)/mk/Makeconf, variable GCCDIR_f.

L4 headers are installed to $(L4DIR)/include when you perform make inside
a $(L4DIR/pkg/<package>/include directory. Therefore, crt0.h should be
located in $(L4DIR)/include/l4/crtx/crt0.h.

To build the L4 tree, perform make in $(L4DIR)/pkg. That ensures that
at first all headers of all packages are installed into $(L4DIR)/include.
After that, check that directory for the headers.

You are talking about $(L4DIR)/mk/ As far as I see, printf "%P "
delivers filenames as 'foo bar buz' instead of 'foo\nbar\nbuz'. I assume
that the perl script would complain about '\n's. As this seems to not work
on your box, this could be the reason why crt0.h cannot be found ...
