from openvas-libraries/ChangeLog:

2014-04-23  Henri Doreau <henri.doreau at gmail.com>

	* misc/arglist.h (ARG_STRUCT): Removed arglist type which is never
	assigned anywhere.

	* misc/arglist.c (arg_add_value, arg_set_value, arg_dup, arg_free_all):
	removed unused ARG_STRUCT handling cases.

We are trying to get rid of any arglist stuff which causes far more trouble
than good. In OpenVAS-8 there are even less uses, but still not fully eliminated.
