(ITS#8202) openldap assumes printf has %z

Built 2.4.41 on Solaris 9; ran 'make check' which failed to start slapd with
the following errors:

55ab70f0 config_build_entry: "olcDatabase={-1}frontend"
55ab70f0 config_build_entry: "olcDatabase={0}config"
55ab70f0 config_build_entry: "olcDatabase={1}bdb"
55ab70f0 config_build_attrs: error 21 on olcDbCacheSize value #0
55ab70f0 config_build_entry: build "zu" failed: ""

Eventually found this to be due to the assumption that %z format
works in printf; this is not the case on Solaris 9.   (Solaris 10 has %z)

Found the following code that makes this assumption (there may be others):


My workaround was to use %l instead of %z which works for me; may not
be 100% fix though.

I previously built 2.4.33 which has some %z'isms too but not in places
that cause 'make check' to fail.
