Dear Harold,

thank you very much for this patch. As I can see, basically you 
have replaced the long pathname expressions by ISPP (pre-processor) macros 
which should make it easier to read the file. This is clearly a benefit, 
especially for path names that are repeated a lot. 

However, I would like to improve your patch a little bit. Attached you can 
find my proposed patch: I've changed the macro names to use the standard 
autoconf/automake conventions of the unix build system, and I've decreased 
the number of macros so that only those pathnames are put through ISPP that 
are really used more than once. 

Can you test whether, patched in this way, will work for you as 
well? Currently I don't have a win32 machine at hand.

Thank you very much for this feedback.
