In the case where the output files from split(1) are of a specified
size (in bytes) and the size of the input is known, it is possible
to compute the minimum required suffix_length rather than requiring
it to be specified or accepting the default (2).
Fix: The attached diffs add a -B switch, which requests the shortest
suffix_length consistent with the input and output file sizes
and otherwise behaves the same as -b.
How-To-Repeat: examine manpage and/or code
