These are warnings, not errors.  There's a significant difference,
especially with Windows compilers that like to second-guess the coder's
intent and annoy him with warnings.

The warnings aren't actually occuring at line 60 at all.  And probably not
even in handler.c.  It's simply saying that you have a mismatched
prototype for isname() somewhere.  Go to handler.h and seek out the
prototype for it, and change it to match.  I imagine that it's just a
simple matter of removing the "const" keyword.  Alternatively, and perhaps
more correctly, you can add "const" to the function definition -- which
then brings you back to line 60.  Your pick.
