changeset 1717:2f2c7ae058d7 draft

Only switch on printf format warnings for error_exit() and friends when TOYBOX_DEBUG enabled. One again gcc manages to be incompetent about producing warnings. For example, in bzcat we error_exit() with a message that's an error code fed into an array of string constants, and apparently dereferencing an array of string literals doesn't give you a string literal according to -Wformat-security. Not breaking the code to humor the compiler here, the compiler is wrong.
