Description of problem:
From the NEWS file:
+Version 1.4.10 - 09 Jul 2007, by Eric Blake (CVS version 1.4.9c)
+* Upgrade from GPL version 2 to GPL version 3 or later.
+* A number of portability improvements inherited from gnulib.
+* Avoid undefined behavior introduced in 1.4.9b in the `format' builtin
+ when handling %c. However, this area of code has never been documented,
+ and currently does not match the POSIX behavior of printf(1), so it may
+ have further changes in the next version.
+Version 1.4.9b - 29 May 2007, by Eric Blake (CVS version 1.4.9a)
+* Fix regression introduced in 1.4.9 in the `eval' builtin when performing
+* Fix regression introduced in 1.4.8 in the `-F' option that made it
+ impossible to freeze more than 512 kibibytes of diverted text.
+* The synclines option `-s' no longer generates sync lines in the middle of
+ multiline comments or quoted strings.
+* Work around a number of corner-case POSIX compliance bugs in various
+ broken stdio libraries. In particular, the `syscmd' builtin behaves
+ more predictably when stdin is seekable.
+* The `format' builtin now understands formats such as %a, %A, and %'hhd,
+ and works around a number of platform printf bugs. Furthermore, the
+ sequence format(%*.*d,-1,-1,1) no longer outputs random data. However,
+ some non-compliant platforms such as mingw still have known bugs in
+ strtod that may cause testsuite failures.
+* The testsuite is improved to also run gnulib portability tests for the
+ features that M4 imports from gnulib.
