sorry; I didnt think further about, but that was just the answer to your
question as I understood it;
and to be 100% sure I quickly checked it with the test sample ...
also I wouldnt be much surprised if the test sample would give other
results with other preprocessors than the one from gcc ...

lets 1st get the pending release out of the door;
the current 'logic' seems at least to work better than what we had
before; and after the release we should check for a better solution like
Yang suggested - but that would then cause to modify all Windows static
makefiles, and a bunch of testing would then be required too (for which
I have not the time ATM).
