Actually, this has been fixed. Michiel Van Baak submitted a patch on the 
bugtracker reinstating the casting in all places where a sentinel NULL was 
required (execl and execlp calls). The bug number was 11669 and the SVN revision 
where it was fixed was 96147. If there are any other places where this needs to 
be done, don't hesitate to submit a patch.
