:This is a standard macro and part of C99.

   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.
