printf \x is an extension found in bash (and perhaps other shells), but not
dash. When using dash as the system shell, I get one XPASS in the last
release, one FAIL with sources from git, and other tests give the expected
results but don't test what they should. Octal escape sequences should work on
any shell (see `man 1p printf`), this patch updates the tests to use them.
