That's what autoconf does for you. The only thing you have to do is to
prepare some macros which check if the requested feature is available
and then produces a preprocessor define (like HAVE_MSG_NOSIGNAL).
The benefit is that it is more genreric than checking in the code for
the OS/OS version/OS release

#if defined (LINUX || Solaris_10)
#elif defined (Solaris_28 || HP/UX_11)

see above

Autoconf does run m4 macros (some already provided - but you can also
implement your own) before you start compiling your source code.
