Sorry, I don't see any significance of this for MSVC.  Jason, are you
saying that compiling _any_ program with cl, the MS compiler,
_requires_ the -Di386 and -D_X86_ switches?  I don't think so.  If
not, then why do we need to tell cl it is compiling an x86 program? it
should know that by default.

Can someone with MSVC please see if removing these two switches causes
any trouble?

Yes, so what do we need USE_CRT_DLL for, again?
