I'm currently doing this for kicks (Well, actually because it kills
a botload of warnings, lint and otherwise). Once make world is working
again, I'll put up a patch.

My approach is to typedef caddr_t to void*, and then fix the errors this
causes. So far, they are all no-brainers; mainly function prototypes
that are inconsistent with their definitions. There are a few places
where caddr_t is assumed to point to char.
