eliminate warnings in printcmd.c

This patch eliminates warnings whereby the format string is not a
string literal and GCC cannot check it at compile-time.  I don't
expect this patch to be tremendously popular, but my hope is that it
will stimulate some discussion on how to really fix it :-)

Cheers, Ben

	* defs.h (printf_filtered_nonliteral): New extern function.
	* utils.c (printf_filtered_nonliteral): Implement it.
	* printcmd.c (printf_command): Use it where the format string is
	not a string literal.
