Fix type for abs() call in editors/hte

During the exp-run in bug 208158, it was found that editors/hte gives errors with libc++ 3.8.0 [1]:

htapp.cc:3026:9: error: call to 'abs' is ambiguous
        while (abs(a - b) > 1) {

This is because abs() is being called with an unsigned argument.  Fix this by casting the argument to the appropriate signed type.
