Don't thank me. I didn't write any of it (yet).  Soon as we figure out what
format (LaTeX?) we want it to be in now and I go learn it.

Daniel wants to put the BSD snprintf() in a snprintf.c file to link in if
we don't need it. I was thinking of adding one that behaved just like
sprintf() if you didn't have snprintf(). Sure you won't have the
buffer-checking behavior of the real thing, but the buffers should be
sufficiently large enough anyway.  My other alternative was using libiberty
from the GNU project for snprintf().
