Would this make it possible to install all of gnulib's replacement
header files?  In other words, will this lead to them being completely

If the answer is yes, I think it would be potentially useful.
Otherwise, I don't care either way, as long as it works.

(There is the problem if the host has multiple rather different
compilers installed: then these generated header files may not work with
all of them.  But I don't know how to solve that problem.  Adding logic
into the header file can work, but I suppose there are some thing a CPP
test can't test for.)
