Wait a second... Is this really the case? Would we (or other people) be
allowed to distribute binary-only versions for, for example, Windows if we
used a GPLed implementation of snprintf() in olsrd?

Hmmm. Maybe we should simply use OpenBSD's implementation. We'd then
probably have the world's safest snprintf() in olsrd. :-) And it would
come with a BSD license.
