You guys are missing the point.

We *need* mscrt/snprintf.o for all MinGW32 versions, and all MinGW-w64 versions
that are less than 3.

The point of using it for older verions is to enable mingw's printf,
which is more c99 compliant (%z etc).

tl;dr leave it as is.

Sincerely, the author of the patch that added it in FFmpeg in the first place
