I guess so.

I just assume that the closer it is to the way other builds work
(i.e. autoconf in this case) the better.

I see.  But keeping a separate HAVE_NTGUI still makes sense in case we
want to allow non-GUI builds (or in case we ever want to provide an X11
version of the W32 build).  It's not important to keep the distinction,
but I don't see much benefit in getting rid of rid.
