Comment(by felix):

 Replying to [comment:7 sjamaan]:
 > I found
 =mingw-users some info about mingw's support for these functions]. They
 say msvcr80.dll comes from Visual Studio 2005 or later.  If you're using
 something older it doesn't work.  I guess that means Windows XP doesn't
 include it?

 Right, MSVCRT60/70 would not support it.

 > Apparently adding "PRINTF_EXPONENT_DIGITS=2" to the environment also
 works. Maybe we can just put a setenv() call to the initialization
 function instead (hopefully that's picked up anytime and not just at the
 start of the program....).

 Ugh. That's ugly. Can't we just accept that Windows is a piece-of-shit
 operating system and simply skip these tests on that platform?
