I looked at the defsubr thing a bit.

It could be done either with a new program or with some modifications to
make-docfile.  It is a little different than the globals.h problem since
there are DEFUNs that are protected by #if.

My implementation idea is to track #if/#else/#endif, and then for a
source file foo.c, emit a `foo.inc' that has a single function that
contains calls to defsubr, with each defsubr bracketed by the same #if
logic as the DEFUN.

I don't know how to easily solve the Makefile part of this problem.
Overuse of GNU make has probably corrupted me.  In particular, each .o
must depend on just the corresponding .inc.  I didn't see how to do that
without a bunch of `foo.o: foo.inc' lines.

GCC has required GNU make for a number of years now.  It really
simplifies things and it is widely available.
