I tracked this one down. There's one file (./tests/server/scs.c)
that uses snprintf() without the:

        #define _MPRINTF_REPLACE
        #include <curl/mprintf.h>

logic. It's not really a functional problem, because it turns out
that curl and libcurl build fine. BUT it needs to be documented or
fixed, because the tests won't build (which makes it appear that curl
doesn't build) and run.

I can submit the changes. The code change is trivial, but I'm not
really familiar enough with configure/autoconf/automake to call that
change trivial.
