Sorry, I don't follow this.  Won't this run into a problem when (for
example) private headers include system headers?  E.g.,

   // module being implemented
   #include "my-interface.h"

   // system headers
   #include <stdio.h>

   // gnulib and private headers
   #include "minmax.h"
   #include "private-header.h"

where private-header.h includes <utility.h> when HAVE_UTILITY_H, and
this happens to be the first inclusion of <utility.h>.  (Solaris 10
<utility.h> defines MIN.)

And it's not just private headers: gnulib headers could have the same
