I dont think we do.

I just recompiled wireshark after removing all snprintf references
from the build and it appears to work fine.
(i dont compile with pcap nor do i compile with plugins   but those
should be minor issues and easy to fix if required)

i have checked in a patch that removes out donated snprintf from the sources

many thanks for the debian people for pointing out this dead code
