I thought 5.6 was old? ;)

Looks like you need to install a library that includes snprintf.  I'm not
sure if there's an official way to do that with Sun, of if you can just
grab one and build it.  On sunos 5.6 I see the function is available.

This came up a few days ago where adding -ldb added vsnprintf function.
The swish distribution contain the code which is uses when building for
VMS.  Swish's configure script needs to check for that function and build
the library if needed, I suppose.  Any autoconf experts around?
