I'll suggest to use different branches for every port (including MS
Windows). This way you can avoid most part of the #ifdef crazyness,
keeping the code much cleaner and responsability divisions better

A consequence of this would be to have to distribute several source
tarballs (one per port) instead of just a monolithic one, but I think it
is a lesser price to pay.
