It is not necessary to do this in the source at all. Just do some define 
some things in the makefile. My makefile.msc (for vc6 - vc2008) contains:

	-Dsnprintf=_snprintf -Dinline=__inline 
-DM_PI=3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751 \
	-DPNGAPI=__cdecl -Dcairo_public=__declspec(dllexport) \
