We have Wave, so we can do it pretty easily. The problem is that we
have to get all the #defines that the compiler provides automatically
and those that are passed on the command line into the mix.

AM> One way to do this would be to introduce a new Jam macro,
MACROS, which is the list of -D options. This is similar to
having HDRS, the list of dirs for which the -I option will be used.

In just the same way that the compiler options are altered to
include -I for all the dirs in HDRS, the compiler options
will include MACROS.
