Any ETA about applying this diff? The problem is that failures in the
bmake test suite are treated as fatal errors during the bootstrap.
Thus, users need to apply the patch manually for running bootstrap on
MirBSD. The printf(1) manpage in NetBSD says

     The printf utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').

so I am somewhat confident that printf is available virtually everywhere.
