I have compiled and linked the suggestion proposed by Martin (took the code from Git) and have encountered no errors thus far.

I've done a little research and afaics casting to void** is the best 
solution. I've patched it in the trunk, however, not having x64 system I 
cannot test it. Let me know whether it's OK now.
