I think the fork in the road is the #define __midl that I'm assuming
(based on comments in <winnt.h>) only gets set in WinNT and higher.
Since it doesn't get set in Win98 by default, the header inclusion
stuff takes a different route, if you will.  At least, this is my best
guess at this stage.

Heh.  Amusing?  Not any more so than your question. ;-)  But if it
needs to be done, it needs to be done, right?

I'll keep researching the issue over here to see if I can come up with
a solid solution.  I would ask that if developers have a patch that
they think might in some way break the Win98 build they either verify
the patch themselves under Win98 or send it to me to validate--I'm
cool with that if others are.  I'd just like to enjoy the luxury of a
buildable APR on a daily basis like others do.

Oh, and I want an office with a view.  And a company car--SUV, British
racing green, please.  And options, gimme options, and...
