I'm somewhat willing to approve this patch.  Note this is the revised
one from

I had ambitious plans involving making printf work on target types.
But they aren't going to come through any time soon.

However, for host types we could import the printf (vsprintf-posix)
module from gnulib, then always assume PRINTF_HAS_LONG_LONG as long as
HAVE_LONG_LONG_INT.  I did the work of adding gnulib modules already.
So maybe this is a better option.  What do you think?

You've got enough buffer space to do this but I had to think about it
a couple times to work out why :-)
