I don't see how that warning should prevent things to work since on your 32
bit system the long and int will be the same size...

I think we should make sure both libcurl and libssh2 first checks for
"__ssize_t_defined" and only do the magic if that is not set and we should set
it afterwards.

The __ssize_t_defined define is what glibc uses for exactly this purpose and I
think it makes sense to use an already established define for this.

Are you up to providing us with the necessary patches? (I'm co-admining the
libssh2 project so I can take that patch as well)
