In the LUA interpreter used by "zfs program", the lua format() function accidentally includes support for '%f' and friends, which can cause compilation problems when building on platforms that don't support floating-point math in the kernel (e.g. sparc). Support for '%f' friends (%f %e %E %g %G) should be removed, since there's no way to supply a floating-point value anyway (all numbers in ZFS LUA are int64_t's).
