The drift between respective "config.h.in" is substantial.  A Perl
script implementation looks feasible.  The challenge lies in an in
depth analysis of element in "windows-NT/config.h.in" that don't
occur in "./config.h.in" which may require a larger chunk of time
than I have right now.  I plan to revisit this topic after finishing
the missing function prototype list I took up in early April 2004.
