Hrmmm...just checked, and, under FreeBSD:

> grep fread *.h
stdio.h:size_t   fread __P((void *, size_t, size_t, FILE *));

where size_t is defined to be an unsigned int, vs long on AIX...

i sort of suspect that the use of size_t is more the norm then the
exception, if you all check your fread defines...?
