What are we looking at in fread.c?  I see no unsigned there, and
the code all looks quite careful.

Hmm.  No, the range check on the size_t size argument to setvbuf()
is wrong: (int)size < 0, rather than size < INT_MAX, so
there's some possibility that a user-supplied buffer could be
incorrectly under-utilized on a system with 64-bit size_t...

I don't think that's an error in fread.c per se, though.
