Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package htdig-3_2_0-19_20030601 from Fedora.

The compiler said

WordDBPage.cc(85): warning #61: integer operation result is out of 

The source code is

       if(cmp || size>8*1024*1000000000)

I make that nine zeros, which makes the rhs about 8e12, which won't 
into a 32 bit integer. Overflow is bound to occur. Only solution
seems to be to use 64 bit long integers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. by source code inspection

Additional info:
Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2004-01-13 12:22:41 EST
Fixed in latest package. Checking the code seems to suggest that the
first if contains the 1000000000 wrongly.

Removed that, checkes follow if everything still works.

When  verified will close as rawhide.

Read ya, Phil
Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2004-01-14 09:26:31 EST
OK, verified that the fixed rpm works.

Rawhide version htdig-3.2.0b5-3 and later contain the fix.

Read ya, Phil
