unsigned is a pretty large number.

+Feh. Looks like another freebsdism, all right. Even though
+_SC_GETPW_R_SIZE_MAX (71) is clearly defined as a legitimate value for
+sysconf() in unistd.h, the darn thing just gives an error for it. The
+man page says something about how sysctl() is preferred (but
+non-portable) So, my suggestion (request) would be to check the
+return value for the sysconf() call and if it's -1, then just use the
+default of 1024.
