Hm. Thanks for the info.
Just a question (a bit off): To tell the truth, I thought that I should
use (char *)k->data, but I saw that alpm_splitdep(k->data) is used
everywhere, and gcc is not so strict there. Why? Because of const char*?
-- because when I changed the alpm_splitdep definition to
"pmdepend_t *alpm_splitdep(const char *depstring);", pacman failed to
compile with --enable-debug (incompatible pointer type warning).
Note: The patch is malformed (linebreaks), but I could easily fix it to
