[OPEN-ILS-DEV] PATCH: srfsh.c (fprintf -> fputs)

This patch replaces several calls to fprintf() or printf() with calls
to fputs(), where we don't use conversion specifications.

Since fputs() doesn't have to parse the output text for conversions,
it should be marginally more efficient than fprintf() or printf().

More importantly: in one case the output text comes in part from an
input message, and may conceivably contain conversion specifications,
whether inadvertently or maliciously.  In that case, fprintf() would
look for non-existent parameters to format into the output, resulting
in undefined behavior.
