True. In fact, one exposes himself to censure by even daring to use it. :)
However, I'm not trying to compile FFmpeg under MSVC, but merely to link
to mingw binaries.

Are you suggesting there is a way to link in a better snprintf() when
building a executable image using MSVC? If so, please advise on the
procedure. Would this consist of linking one of the libmsvcr*.a files
from the mingw directory and completely suppressing any automatic
linkage of the MSVC runtime?
