size and compile warning fixes

Currently app-misc/bfr does not work with multi GB buffers due to internal int usage. Causes lots of shoe shining with modern LTO streamers. The attached patch fixes this as well as some compile warnings.

Thank you. This patch should be applied to the upstream source.
Unfortunately the link to the upstream HOMEPAGE in the ebuild is out of date. #629766
