Borland (C++Builder 4.0 Build 14.11) compiler

In nightly download from Wed/Thurs I got this ...

[C++ Error] vtkImageReader.cpp(565): E2015 Ambiguity between
'std::fpos<std::mbstate_t>::operator -(int) const' and
'std::fpos<std::mbstate_t>::operator -(long) const'.

which is easily fixed by adding an (int) after the minus sign as below.
return this->File->tellg() -

Not sure I should report this as a bug, but...
