Patch error at src/xpdev/link_list.c:133

Created a patch in the debian package build system to fix a compile time error of Synchronet v3.14a at line 133 of src/xpdev/link_list.c:
> Error during compile - link_list.c:133: error: incompatible types in assignment.
Commented that line out, as did upstream; reference revision
[1.37](http://cvs.synchro.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/src/xpdev/link_list.c.diff?r1=1.36&r2=1.37)
of that file in CVS (cvs.synchro.net). (And because it was already fixed in CVS, will not need the patch for v3.15 packages.)
