Thanks for the suggestion. Although I didn't go to the trouble of writing code to generate the multiline diagnostic you suggested, it's easy to change "possibly undefined macro" (which doesn't cover the situation you mentioned) to the slightly less confusing "undefined or overquoted macro". Since the diagnostic can be caused by misspelled macro names, which do occur, I thought it wise to retain a mention of that in the diagnostic. I installed the attached patch.
