AC_LANG_PROGRAM([[
     #include <windows.h>
     #include <usp10.h>]],
   [[void test(PIMAGE_NT_HEADERS pHeader)
     {PIMAGE_SECTION_HEADER pSection = IMAGE_FIRST_SECTION(pHeader);}]])

is expanded into the following program (enhanced whitespace):

#include <windows.h>
#include <usp10.h>

int
main ()
{
  void test(PIMAGE_NT_HEADERS pHeader)
  {
    PIMAGE_SECTION_HEADER pSection = IMAGE_FIRST_SECTION(pHeader);
  }
  ;
  return 0;
}

My fixed version with AC_LANG_SOURCE will not emit the main() function
and thus avoids nested functions and instead generates this source (again
with enhanced whitespace):

#include <windows.h>
#include <usp10.h>

void
test(PIMAGE_NT_HEADERS pHeader)
{
  PIMAGE_SECTION_HEADER pSection = IMAGE_FIRST_SECTION(pHeader);
}

The background is that when trying to configure with an unsupported
compiler, MSVC in this case, it errors out with "the Windows API
headers are too old to support this build", which is a bogus error
message.

Agreed, it doesn't really change anything for supported configurations,
but being able to nest functions has nothing to do with the test at
hand.

Cheers,
Peter
