Ok, this might be helpful then. The other day, John Vandenberg provided
a link to a small site with a bunch of functions written on it. The
functions plug some of the missing gaps caused by platform X having a
function, but platform Y not. i.e. there's a version of vasprintf(), etc.
The author has given his permission for (the Ming project at least)
people to use them in their code. Please see inlined email below. :)
Perhaps it would be beneficial to someone (with more time and experience
than me) to take a look at including them in MinGW, as Earnie mentions?
Regards and best wishes,

Hmmm...I should have made an explicit statement about that someplace.
Every hunk of code there was written by me without reference to anything
except the man pages for the functions, or donated by a friend. The
intent is to place no license constraints on any of it. vasprintf() I
wrote myself, and I'm glad to hear it actually works. Anyway, you are
welcome to use it.
