I don't believe that's a typo, Jörg.  There are both "ptrmismatch" and
"ptrmismatch1" tags that the C compiler will skip warning about under
different situations.  With earlier versions of the compiler, though,
there was just "ptrmismatch".  That's why it appears in the configure
script -- when that part of the configure script was written, there was
no "ptrmismatch1".

I think your change is still a good one.  With the compiler behavior
under 5.x, ptrmismatch1 is very likely the tag you want to suppress
warnings for.
