That was from the -I../../../include portion of the cl command to pick
up wine/test.h. That is, that rpc.h file is the one from Wine. The
other headers are being picked up from standard include path settings.

I have now got msvcmaker to work, so am using the VS project files
generated by that. While they are not perfect, they are usable for the
most part (some tests require work to get building), and do not have
the above issues.

Thanks for the help/advice,
