We should import the ssize_t module from gnulib, which adds a configure
macro for this.  The way grub uses gnulib is a bit odd, though, so it's
not something I'd feel comfortable with just fixing; it needs somebody
more familiar with it.  After we switch to automake (a prerequisite),
could we switch to using gnulib-tool for the gnulib import as well, so
that this becomes a bit more standard?
