I don't see how glibc2.3 would help, and it would not work on other
systems, like Solaris, nor any present system.  Since this is regression
from any previous g++ (well, at least since 2.95) version, a different
solution is needed.

Formatting numbers is not that tough, and earlier releases did it
themselves.  Not sensible inside a template though.
