Alright, there are no volunteers at this time.

The changes to detect printf() issues (which now correctly fails the
build on Solaris 9 instead of masking the post-build test failures) are
now tcpdump draft pull request #1031.  Please treat this as a request
for comments and if something does not look right, make your comments
either there or on the mailing list.

Given no objections, this will be merged in a few weeks.
