template library or mailbox library for C

Is there any good text template library for C? To be clear, I mean
library that would help me in the following situation:

I want to output (or rather return as char *) an SMS as an email in
mbox format. Straightforward way is:

sprintf(tmp, "From address@hidden %s", number, date);
strcat(buf, tmp);
sprintf(tmp, "From: address@hidden", number);
strcat(buf, tmp);

And all the ugly stuff wrt allocating memory.

Other solution I could think of is:
"From address@hidden %s" \
"From: address@hidden" \
sprintf(buf, MAIL_TEMPLATE, number, date, number, ...);

That's still ugly but somehow better. And allocating stuff is not that bad.

Is there any library that would allow me to create such email in an
easy way? Or more generic solution that would allow me to define a
"From address@hidden %date%" \
"From: address@hidden" \

replace(buf, MAIL_TEMPLATE, number, date, ...);
that would do everything for me?

take care,
Pawel Kot
