So we can't use functions that are in libc, (and were there in our
last major release) there? I fail to see the logic in this. Should
we not use functions that haven't always been in libc then? Like
snprintf? I see how this can be a problem in a generic Heimdal
release, but it's very strange to not allow this in a NetBSD
