Just a note to mention I have a version of NetBSD's printf(1) locally with
the FreeBSD fixes merged in (yes, it was a fair amount of work given that
NetBSD revamped it quite a bit 10 years ago before they even moved to the
4.4BSD code!), and a few more fixes of my own (some things it seems that
nobody except David Korn gets right standards-wise, and he cheated! ;-).
I plan on letting the NetBSD folks look it over before I submit it here
(and I want to do a little more work on it before that), but if anyone else
is planning to work on this code you might want to touch base with me.
I have detailed notes on my merge effort and if I don't run out of steam
I'll try to bundle my test cases into a little regression test suite.
