I really dislike having to pre-define anything prior to doing
an #include. There are a few places where we have no choice,
but if something is going to be 'standard C' then I just do not
accept that it must require a pre-defined macro to operate properly.
I suppose if you really, really want to use the macro you can make
it a -D option in the compile line. That is, fix the Makefile rather
then put the #define in the source code.
