SubjectRe: Kill signed chars !!! => PPC uses unsigned chars
The signedness of 'char' is never certain between compilers.  There are x86
C compilers that implemented 'char' as unsigned, others as signed, and
others that offered a compile switch to do either way if the default didn't
work with the code being compiled.

When it matters, just be explicit :)
