like "cannot include windows.h: file not found", which I don't see in
the messages you get. So it might be that windows.h is simply not
included due to some preprocessor macros. If you compile
with the -P or -E flag, you should be able to trace the file inclusion.

However, in lo-utils.h, windows.h inclusion is only made if
