I see that some *printf objects from gnulib are linked into builds even
on glibc platforms.  If that would be fixed by using a module
printf-posix-no-fp, I would use it.  (My projects rarely use

The code ends up in the *.a libraries, which sometimes is used to make
size-based decisions which library is the smallest, so it would be nice
