<define> and <include> values are added to the response files (to save
command line space!).

Look in the bin\msvc\debug\hello.obj.rsp file mentioned above.

That's because <cxxflags> values are explicitly added to the command line
and not the response file.

NOTE: If you don't see the /DTESTING line in the response file, try deleting
it and re-running the build.
