Is is a bug that fgets() takes an "int" as the size of the object and
not a size_t?  Look at the following when compiled on an alpha:

	alpha:/tmp 187> cat foo.c
	#include <stdio.h>

	int foo()
		char buf[10];

		fgets(buf, sizeof buf, stdin);
	alpha:/tmp 188> cc -c -Wconversion foo.c
	foo.c: In function `foo':
	foo.c:7: warning: passing arg 2 of `fgets' with different width due to prototype

If I change the "sizeof buf" to "(int)sizeof buf" it obviously gets rid
of the warning, but that doesn't seem right...
