Thanks for the patch! Unfortunately I don't have convenient access to
any IRIX platforms, so I can't test the program under IRIX's compiler
or its headers (if using GCC). The change is now committed to the tree.

I've marked this QA To Verify, although I've done my own testing
on other Unix platforms. Printing works with a signed character
type on Linux and Solaris.

Great. If you find anything else that's giving you problems, be sure
to let the list know. I know I haven't been the most responsive in
the past, but now that I know a lot more about what may be happening
with IRIX, some things might be more apparent.
