pub fn main() -> %void {
    @import("std").debug.warn("{}", "");

Results in the following error:

I believe this is #557. I made it so the above code now does this:

/home/andy/dev/zig/build/lib/zig/std/debug/index.zig:30:23: error: compiler bug: var args can't handle void.
    stderr.print(fmt, args) catch return;
/home/andy/dev/zig/build/test.zig:11:30: note: called from here
    @import("std").debug.warn("{}", "");

we'll probably leave #557 broken and only fix it in the self hosted compiler.
