declaring routines which return function pointers

I have a routine which resembles the following:

	int (*f)();
	int fa(), fb();

	fa() {
		f = fb;

	fb() {

The problem with the above is that lint complains about an illegal combin-
ation of a pointer with an integer in the 'return' statement.  I have tried
various casts and function declarations to try to satisfy lint, but none of
them have worked.  Does anybody know what I should do to keep lint happy?
