Hi Taco and all!

here is a patch which fixes compilation on solaris 8 sparc using sun
studio compiler:

--- texk/web2c/web2c/coerce.h	(revision 13085)

the error message is:

cc: acomp failed for ../../../texk/web2c/luatexdir/font/vfpacket.c

and these lines contain

  pos = synch_p_with_c(cur);

which gets preprocessed to

  pos =  zsynch_p_with_c ( ( scaledpos ) ( cur ) );

and since scaledpos is a structure, it is invalid, because
ISO C forbids casting nonscalar to the same type.

There was a similar fix applied in TL revision 7719 last year.
