[PATCH 2/3] MSVC doesn't define __STDC__ by default

MSVC *never* defines __STDC__ by default. It currently supports a
dialect of C99 by default. This macro can be defined if MSVC's C11 or
C17 mode is used (with /std:c11 or /std:c17), with the /Zc:__STDC__
compiler flag. Defining this macro would have unfortunate

So avoid testing __STDC__ when MSVC is used.
