A venerable system that you have there -- regretfully older systems
(your software is around four years old) often have defects that have
been fixed in more recent systems.

I can't say which test in particular failed, if you want to find out (so
I can tell what exactly is wrong), edit xsnprintf.c, find the line
"#ifdef VERBOSE" and add a line "#define VERBOSE 1" just before the
#ifdef line, and type "make xsnprintf" then "./xsnprintf" and report the

I'd think that Slackware 4.0 is just a tad too dated and should be
upgraded. Bugs in libc or the kernel might haunt you some day.
