(3.0.7) Why isn't prs_alloc_mem returning a void *?

The routine parse_prs.c/prs_alloc_mem is currently declared returning a 
pointer to char instead of a pointer to void.

This is causing casts to be required almost everywhere it is used.

It would seem to me that it's usage indicates that it should be declared 
as returning a pointer to void, which would simplify the modules that 
call it.
