Thanks for the report. This is fixed by upgrading to the latest libcroco release, through

libcroco has several instances of using fprintf to print out arbitrary strings using the second parameter. This causes the following compiler error when -Werror=format-security is enabled:

libcroco/cr-statement.c:2610:17: error: format not a string literal and no format arguments [-Werror=format-security]
                 fprintf (a_fp, str);
libcroco/cr-statement.c: In function 'cr_statement_dump_charset':

It looks like this was fixed upstream in the following commit: https://github.com/GNOME/libcroco/commit/c7197cad42d6269739f379025c2bec9e474c8027.

Would it be possible to either pull this commit or resync to the latest upstream libcroco?
