Actually there is a portable solution. Here's what i did when I compiled
the Wine tests on Windows:

Run 'vcvars32.bat' first. When you install Microsoft Visual C++ you
can either tell it to add environment variables with the useful stuff
(either in autoexec.bat or the registry for NT), or just rely on
'vcvars32.bat'. This script is usually in the include directory:
c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\include\vcvars32.bat

Well, so I run it on the command line and then in the makefile (a realy
.mak file) I put:


Then I don't use -I at all and the compiler will automatically use the
environment variable. If using the .mak file directly from the IDE you
don't even need to run vcvars32.bat,

However I still had include order problems: part of the headers were
coming from MS and part from Wine but did not have time to look into it
in detail. So I ended up extracting the tests from the Wine tree. But if
you are able to avoid the header mixup then the above could work.

           If it stinks, it's chemistry. If it moves, it's biology.
                  If it does not work, It's computer science.
