I think what he was asking is this:  Since pid_t has to be a signed integer 
type, but gcc does not accept %d for it, then it could be that pid_t is wider 
than an int, so casting it to int would potentially lose information.

(Btw., the Windows port defines pid_t as unsigned long; that's surely wrong.)
