Why do you say that? That code is being ported from Microsoft's compiler, and
I guess that if it works there and here then it ought to be portable.
There are many meanings of the term "portable". On one hand, the
above include is not "portable" since the C standard does not address
how to interpret it. On the other, it is not "portable" since it
depends on the source code residing in a relative directory to the
header, and (possibly) even being compiled in that same directory. If
symbolic links are used to create part of the build tree, then it is
likely that compilation will fail due to how symbolic links are used.
