Doing this with macros instead of C functions is pretty crappy - it
defeats typechecking and can lead to unused-var warnings when the
feature is disabled.

Fixing this might not be practical if struct stack_trace isn't
available, dunno.

I'm not liking this much. The behaviour when the output buffer is too
small is scary. snprintf() will return "the number of characters which
would be generated for the given input", so local variable `buf_len'
will go negative and we pass a negative int into snprintf()'s `size_t
size'. snprintf() says "goody, lots and lots of buffer!" and your
machine crashes.

buf_len should be a size_t and snprint_stack_trace() will need to be
changed to handle this.
