Nothing fails.
I insert some wrong statement in 'ifdef' clause to double check this
part is used rather than else clause on a machine which has correct
ssize_t is defined. But at least on RH7.2 (where ssize_t is defined)
this intentionally modified ifdef clause is not used.

If I understand correctly, your intention is
1) If ssize_t is defined, _SSIZE_T is defined
2) If _SSIZE_T is defined, ssize_t is used to define argument
And, RH7.2 should be in thie category but it is not.

If you think on a machine who has ssize_t defined but still use
size_t for argument def is ok, then your patch is ok, but I think
on these machine ssize_t should be used, am I right?
