const gchar const *fmt
is the same as saying
const const gchar *fmt
I don't think `const const' is accepted. If you meant
const gchar *const fmt
the second `const' is meaningless in a formal parameter, and is taken to
be `const gchar *fmt' anyway.

Yep. `gchar const *fmt' and `const gchar *fmt' mean the same thing. It
is only a matter of style.
