Probably, but see below..

I'm not the decider here, really.  Alexandre is.  While I'd like to see my
recent patch get in because it removes a lot of unnecessary junk from
ifenum.c and improves the situation for most people, it's not the end of
the story.  Wine's policy is to try to run on as many systems as possible,
regardless of what system it was built on.  From that perspective, using
your approach is more correct.  Assuming my patch from today gets in, feel
free to improve on it.
