*checks*  Oh, so it is!  Thanks; it's nice to learn the standard
offers more than expected.

Brian: fwiw gnulib printf seems to provide %j, though of course it's a
bit more heavyweight.  And of course there are alternative C libraries
--- e.g., glibc runs on Solaris.

C99 also guarantees the presence of imaxdiv, but arith_yacc.c happily
#ifdefs around it if the build environment lacks it.  I submitted other
patches in the same spirit (working around non-compliant vsnprintf) and they
were accepted.  Would a patch that retains the old code verbatim but
#ifdefs in an alternate implementation on legacy systems be more acceptable?
