Bug #2259: off_t type definition

Author: Robin Carey
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

Dear DragonFlyBSD bugs,

Whilst checking some software I wrote (on leaf.dragonflybsd.org), I
discovered that the


type is a signed value (on leaf.dragonflybsd.org).

On OpenBSD and FreeBSD, off_t is an unsigned value (which I assume is what
it is supposed to be).
