Closer but not quite there.
The predef-check is now working with Windows msvc-14.0 and with the
SunOS tests but there is still a problem with Android. The problem
occurs in the VMD tests but can be illustrated by predef tests also.
Look at the "CrystaX.NET-apilevel-21-x86" predef tests, which have your
latest June 29 commit you mention just above. If you look at the
"clang-linux-3.6" tests you will see that the "info_as_cpp" test shows
everything correctly but the "check_value" test shows "CHECK_VALUE ==
undefined" where it should be "CHECK_VALUE == 1".
Similarly my corresponding VMD Android tests, which relies on
predef-check to pass "-std=c++0x" for the gcc tests, are not doing so there.
So there is still a problem with Android although Sun-OS and VC++14
tests are working fine now with predef-check.
As always I appreciate your efforts to get this working, especially on
OSs like SunOS and Android rather than the usual Windows, Linux,
