I did (or, rather, I didn't notice the extra file when Zoltán did the
work). Now fixed.

Thank you. That makes a lot of sense. I have committed the patch.

Also committed.

I don't have an attitude! I stuck with C90 for a long time, but recently,
and especially for PCRE2, I have used features from later C standards.
But I haven't really kept up with the standards, and my brain is set in
its ways and forgets about things like %z. Maybe this episode will
stick and I might remember in future.

Thank you very much for all the testing you do, and for providing
patches as well as diagnosing the problems. It is extremely helpful to
have someone who knows much more than I do about different OS and
library naming (to name but two things) scrutinizing each release.

Do you think it is worth putting out -RC2 at this stage?
