I'm very familiar with this idiom, so the double cast stands out when
I see it.  If there were a macro I'd have to go figure out whether it
was doing something more subtle.  I'd write it this way, but not
complain if someone else wrote it differently.

Added includes -> update Makefile.in.  Tom's been working on automatic
