        I just checked both 2.7.1fm and the devel code, and the only
%i that's needed is for the sscanf() in LYKeymap.c.  All the others
can be changed to %d or %ld.

        I'll bet it's an interaction with UCX.  The traces indicated
that standard C shared image library functions were using the UCX
htons(), which shouldn't happen because UCX was a layered product.
I'll bet some prefixing gets changed or superceded when UCX is
installed.  We used to have MicroVAXen with old version of VMS/VAX
and VAXC, but with MultiNet instead of UCX, and never had any problems
with %i in print functions.
