In this case, the problem is not that there are too few macro definitions,
but that there are too many. D1 is defined in standard.h, even though in
this particular context there seems to be no need for it to be, because it
looks like a normal function call, with a semicolon at the end, and thus
its arguments are getting skipped over.
So what is the means of getting it to ignore standard.h when standard.h is
not needed to parse the code? It is not very easy to remember the
difference between -macro_file and -macro_file_builtins.
I don't know the code, though, so it may be that standard.h is needed to
parse some other code in the function?
