Now that we're trying to include headers once only from the .c file, the 
  system includes where these are defined are no longer in includes.h 
and thus this kind of thing isn't defined when defines.h is read.  They 
get defined in defines.h and again by the system headers, which 
generates the warning.

One way I can see of dealing with these is to have configure check the 
settings at configure time and put them in config.h.

An alternative would be to include "defines.h" after the system headers 
but before the compat headers.

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
