my bonnie++ lies over the ocean

Got myself new diskspace today: 2x1TB Samsung HD103UJ, enclosed in an Taurus RAID case. First tests in Leopard say 35MB/s over FireWire400, more testing ahead. I was surprised to see that the bonnie++ filesystem benchmark was not available via Fink. Compiling from source failed with:

g++ -O2  -DNDEBUG -Wall -W -Wshadow -Wpointer-arith -Wwrite-strings -pedantic 
        -ffor-scope  -c getc_putc.cpp
getc_putc.cpp: In function ‘int main(int, char**)’:
getc_putc.cpp:174: error: no matching function for call to 
                          ‘min(long unsigned int, unsigned int)’
make: *** [getc_putc.o] Error 1
There is a patch for some 64-bit platforms, but the ifdef does not catch MacOS X, I guess. So, here's a slightly edited version of this very patch:

Btw, first benchmarks of GNU/Linux 2.6.24 with the internal 120GB drive are here.
