I changed the prototype of swab to use ssize_t instead
of int (my buggy patch) or size_t (original). The
reason is that it's the prototype as defined by the
Open Group. See


for a reference.

The main problem is that gcc doesn't find swab in
<unistd.h>, while g++ does, and complains about
incompatible double declaration. I have no idea why
that happens. Anyway, using ssize_t makes them both
happy on Linux.

If this change still causes problems on FreeBSD, I'll
revert it back to size_t and try to come up with a
different solution for g++.
