FWIW I am not sure if this is really an ongoing problem or whether it's
gcc being conservative. However, apparently at least some versions of
Windows don't support %z.
BFD defines various BFD_PRI* macros that you can use if you want to try
for the full approach. I suppose this could be extended to cover "%z".
Casting is fine with me, though of course it can fail if there is
overflow, so some thought is required.
