The easiest way is to define two macros, one that doesn't cast to
GtkCTreeNode * and one that does.

#define GTK_CTREE_NODE_NEXT_(_nnode_) (((GList *)(_nnode_))->next)
#define GTK_CTREE_NODE_NEXT(_nnode_) ((GtkCTreeNode *)(GTK_CTREE_NODE_NEXT_(_nnode_)))

Then use the GTK_CTREE_NODE_NEXT_ macro in the left sides of assignments.

(This was from memory, I don't have my gtk+ source tree used on HP-UX
available right now, so there might be some minor details wrong, but
you get the idea.)
