I was under the impression that those were mainly to support the fact that the
right printf character varies by platform? For instance, gsize can either be
%u or %lu, and goffset could reasonably be anything from %i to %lli.

There's no G_GINT_FORMAT, because it would be %i everywhere by definition,
but because printf formats and default promotions (varargs) are defined in
terms of int/long/long long instead of 16/32/64 bit types, the fixed-length
types need these macros.
