NetBSD HOSTNAME 5.99.55 NetBSD 5.99.55 (NETRAT1) #6: Thu Jul 28 15:14:56 CEST

The manpage of resize_ffs(8) is not really clear about the size argument. You 
have to look into the sourcecode to assure that you have disk sectors.
The current site looks as if it has been written for an older version and then 
just the option added.

The other thing in resize_ffs.c is a small typo.
`man 8 resize_ffs`
