Yes, skipping these parts of the tests sounds like the right fix.

OK. On UTF-8 strings strstr() and strcasestr() are reliable.

Sure. Use the module 'printf-posix' or 'fprintf-posix' or 'sprintf-posix'
(whichever is appropriate) from gnulib, and the problem will be solved.

Alternatively - if you find these *printf modules from gnulib too heavy -,
you can also cast the argument from size_t to 'unsigned long' and use %lu
instead of %zu. Or, from ssize_t to 'long', and use %ld instead of %zd.
Then you don't need the *printf-posix modules from gnulib.
