Just for my self curiousity about including order: why does it is
I'm a partisan of the "include all you need, but no more" style,
meaning that if I use a symbol, I have to include what defines it.
e.g. for sciwrappers.h, I would include glib.h as it uses GLib types
and define or include something that defines PLAT_GTK. I don't see any
reason why not doing this, and I think it is better for each code part
to be self-sufficient.
Then the question: why it is done this way?

#warning is a GCC (and perhaps others) extension, prefer #error for
general cases ;)
