The *printf-posix modules should _now_ work fine.  (Jim noted the fatal typo.)

Jim, it would be useful to use the printf-posix module in coreutils:
1) The 'printf' program uses all floating-point directives, even with 'L'.
2) The 'seq' program started to print garbage on BeOS when it was changed to
   use 'long double' values, where it used 'double' values before. You can see
   from gnulib/doc/functions/printf.texi that this affects also other platforms
   than BeOS.
