Not sure what happened...apparently the majordomo made a
mistake and sent this back to me thinking I was making a request
to Majordomo@cygnus.com...which, of course, I wasn't.

If you are using "make 3.76.1", you can determine which
values are set for the platform by running "make -p". That gives
you the internal database which the make command uses.
Under NT 4, "os" is set by the internal make database to
Windows_NT...I don't have Win95 or Win98, so am not sure what
the value of OS would be, though I might hypothesize that it is
something like Windows_95, etc.
So, I would think that a make command sequence that goes
<define something NT_like>
<define something Win95_like>
Such a command sequence would be perfectly capable of
determining what platform OS is being used and what needs to be
defined or included depending on the platform OS being used.
