Ah yes you're right, I forgot about the unprototyped case.  This could
be a problem on QNX if they're running the 16-bit QNX in any of the
large data models where pointers are 32-bits and ints are 16-bits.
QNX uses WATCOM's C compiler, which I'm quite familiar with having
worked there... at any rate the def'n of NULL changed several times
over the years and I'm not sure if it's ((void*)0) or just (0) now.
The whole problem is compounded on the 286 by "near" and "far" pointers.
(And also on the 386, but everyone just uses the flat memory model with
near pointers.)
