[fpc-pascal] Problem translating c code to pascal

I'm converting apache 1.3 headers to pascal, and I found something I
don't know how to convert. It's these lines:

static const handler_rec hw_handlers[] = {
     { "hw-app", hw_handle_req },
     { NULL }

Where handler_req is declared as:

  handler_t = function (param1: Prequest_rec): Integer; cdecl;

  handler_rec = record
    content_type: PChar;	{ MUST be all lower case }
    handler: handler_t;

And hw_handle_req is a function of type handler_t

I don't understand what exactly that constant is. I looks like a
dynamic array with 2 elements, but the second is NULL. How can a
structure be NULL ?

Also, the static modifier here plays any role? Looks redundant to me.
