I wasn't aware that preconv is involved, as the input is plain ASCII.
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.  Just looking at
preconv.cpp, the problem is acutely evident: it calls 'fstat' and
'fseek' on stdin, which is non-portable when stdin is not a disk file.

I guess you meant doc/meref.me, the source file?  When I do that, I
see that the initial portion of the file is not written to the output,
because 'fseek' called after encoding detection fails.  This is, of
course, the direct cause of the warning messages: the part of the
input where the macros are defined is missing from the output.

Done, with a patch that fixes the problem for me.
