Looks like we need to compile with -fno-builtin-sscanf, because gcc
knows the implementation of glibc's sscanf, and you explicitly have to
forbid it to use this knowledge which does not apply perfectly to
Microsofts sscanf. This (of course) is only applicable to those parts of
wine that link to msvcrt and thus use msvcrt's scanf implementation.
