Spend several hours/days changing GCC-specific code to a portable version.

May be you should cast them to (char *) ?
Could you please demonstrate where and how your compiler complains?

When I wrote HP-UX specific code, the alternative for me was either to
write sysdepCallMethod as a routine in pure HP-UX assembler or write
everything in C having only one assembler instruction with arguments
from the C world. Arguments to the asm() directive is a GCC extension.
You should either find a similar construct in your assembler or try to
re-implement sysdepCallMethod in pure assembler for your machine.
Don't think that the first way is much simpler. It is very difficult to
use asm() without C arguments which would work correctly for any
