Well, the problem is editline was recently changed to include snprintf.c 
while sl was not changed to not include it. The problem with changing sl is 
probably (and I haven't looked) in the el_compat case; Presumably if 
el_compat does not do so, el_compat should include snprintf.c and sl should 
then never include it.

Since I wanted it to build, that's the change I made;-)
