Our printf(3) implementation does not support the ' flag, used as
"%'d" or "%'f", which a thousands grouping character.
Implement. The easy approach would be to steal FreeBSD's
implementation, except that they integrated the lite2 printf
implementation years ago and we didn't, so there is now substantial
divergence. Perhaps we should do that anyway, since we've recently
taken their *wprintf() routines, which come from that same lite2 base.
for documentation on the ' flag.
