That's the constructs like this:


where bb_msg_memory_exhausted is declared as extern char *.
This is a poor-man implementation of internal constant
string folding done by gcc for years.

archival/libarchive/data_extract_to_command.c: In function ‘xputenv’:
archival/libarchive/data_extract_to_command.c:41:3: error: format not a string literal and no format arguments [-Werror=format-security]
cc1: some warnings being treated as errors

I'm not sure a patch for this should be sent to upstream,
unless it will patch out all this stuff to rely on gcc
to do the work.  But even there, it wont save from using
slightly different wording for the same message...

So I'm filtering out this -Werror=format-security indeed.
