There are two ways to achieve this, both in the area of the
package that uses gnulib. Say, you want override 'snprintf'
with 'snprintfv'.
 a) Invoke "gnulib-tool --avoid=snprintf --import snprintfv".
 b) Create a gnulib-local directory with a module description
    'modules/snprintf' which has no files, Makefile rules etc.
    but only a dependency on 'snprintfv', and invoke
    "gnulib-tool --local-dir=gnulib-local".

The one in vasnprintf.h, printf-parse.* and printf-args.*
originated in gettext, and was based on the code in glibc,
by Ulrich Drepper.
