Yes, my request was not to dump the entire (750k) preprocessor output to
the list, but to just the relevant portion of the output to make sure
there weren't any macros interfering with the parse.

Matthias probably already hit it on the head - gnulib can guarantee that
uid_t is defined in spite of mingw not providing it, but I haven't
personally checked whether we are using this aspect of gnulib yet, and I
will defer to see Matthias' patches.
