None of them. If you want libssh to work on Windows when built without
MinGW, %z must not be used at all. The Windows implementation of printf
does not support it. You have to use typecasts to print size_t in a
portable way.

Defining __USE_MINGW_ANSI_STDIO directly has been deprecated and emits a
warning in newer MinGW versions:

(deprecated) implicitly enables __USE_MINGW_ANSI_STDIO. MinGW replaces
the printf and scanf function families with C99 compliant versions if
any of the defines is set, leading to slightly larger binaries. However,
that would only fix it if MinGW is used...
