Interesting idea, but... I could (perhaps) live without get*info()
functions, but "snprintf()" is a must for me. Myriads of packages rely on it
and used to find it in "". If it disappears now, I'm toast!

How can it "not be changed for Tru64" and "be OK for others"? If it is in
the Makefile, then it came from and got there via "automake", so
it should be missing for everybody, not just me. I'm still puzzled.

What I did was copy the missing "get*info.c" and "snprintf.c" from version
2.1.15 and re-run "gmake". Then it went smoothly.

I'll test it more soon.
