Right now these compilers are considered by PP to not support variadic

nvcc when cuda is being used
Digital Mars and Symantec C++
sun/oracle C++ < version 5.12 ( current oracle C++ version is 12.6 )
HP aC++ when not using EDG
PGI when not using EDG

Any compiler outside of gcc, clang, vc++, and Intel C++ 17.0 and after
for which __cpluscplus is less than 201103L

Of course saying that variadic macros are always assumed to be supported
does not mean that any of the above will stop working if the compilers
even still exist and do support variadic macros.
