How about making hideif.el capable of running a GCC command such as
above automatically, and using the output to find which macros should
be defined and which shouldn't?

Btw, the example above is simplistic: you actually need to supply all
the relevant compiler switches on the GCC command" the -I switches,
the -D and -U switches, etc.; otherwise, the results will be

As another "btw", we have cpp.el which provides a similar
functionality; perhaps hideif.el could learn something from there?
