spell_parser.c : do_cast() :

  } else { /* cast spell returns 1 on success; subtract mana & set
waitstate */
    if (cast_spell(ch, tch, tobj, spellnum)) {
      if (mana > 0)
 GET_MANA(ch) = MAX(0, MIN(GET_MAX_MANA(ch), GET_MANA(ch) - mana));

There are 5 more WAIT_STATE() in spell_parser.c, one for failing the spell
and 4 for wands, scrolls,
 staves and potions. Changing that should be enough, and it should work.
Moreover, if you want to set the wait_state depending on the spell ( in
call_magic(), mag_damage() or
 wherever you want ), move that WAIT_STATE() before calling cast_spell(),
otherwise it will set
 the waitstate regardless of the value it was set before ( look at the
WAIT_STATE() macro ).
