Yep, and you fail to do this with spacer[] too.  (In case you have not
realised, buf[] and spacer[] contain random data until you
specifically load them.)

I hope this doesn't spoil your fun, but how about:

void centrestring (const char *str, int fg, int bg, 
                   int col, int row, int width) 
    int offset = (width - strlen(str)) / 2;
    putstring (str, fg, bg, col+offset, row);
