Looking at the patch (took longer to find the patch than to do the
olc_quest is defined as:
#define OLC_QUEST(d) ((d)->olc->quest)

that's the problem, it should be:
#define OLC_QUEST(d) (OLC(d)->quest)

d->olc is a void *, so the define for OLC is:
#define OLC(d)          ((struct oasis_olc_data *)(d)->olc)

That should cure it.
