Done.

Done.

snprintf returns a negative number on error. BTW AFAIU the code from
file2alias.c gets dynamically linked against a libc.

I used warn() as it is what is being used in similar conditions
elsewhere in the file.

Then we are missing the check that we are within the bounds of alias as
well as the negative code from s*printf(). snprintf() does this nicely
for us.
