 The way I read POSIX, FreeBSD's current behaviour seems correct. Calling
 fread(3) is equivalent to calling fgetc(3) an appropriate number of
 times, and fgetc(3) shall fail if the end-of-file indicator is set for
 the stream, even if data is available on the underlying file.
 
 Apparently, POSIX aligns with the C standard here; System V tradition is
 not to check the end-of-file indicator here. Both
 src/lib/libc/stdio/refill.c (__srefill()) and Solaris fgetc(3) manpage
 agree about this.
