Actually the C-Code does what C can do really good: obfuscating.
If I understand the code correct, the 'struct a;' itself is never used directly.
It always uses 'struct a* foo'. So foo is a pointer to an empty struct
a, which probably is the C equivalent of a typed pointer. To get strong type
checking, I guess, it is ok to follow Felipe's advice:
type a = record end; pa=^a;
