_WIN32 is defined by the compiler, so you can rely on it being set in
a Win32 environment. WIN32 is not. So if someone wants to use a
different compiler/environment from the one you used (appears to be
msys and/or cygwin, since you're changing autofoo), they have to
remember to define WIN32 in their own project/make files.
