I intend to remove gets(3) in the near future and this port failed in the exp-run (PR 222796)

Rolls in own function to replace venerable gets()

The attached patch should free math/prng from gets.  The reason for not using gets_s() is that it is FreeBSD-specific and I'll try to get this patch into the upstream code.
Comment 2 Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2019-07-04 19:14:28 UTC
gets_s is actually a C11 optional interface not FreeBSD-specific, but it may indeed not be widely available and using it is probably bad for portability
