Yes it's better and it works for all described test environments.

I only changed this for consistency. For me, it works without that define in all test

At least in mingw32 v4.4.4 there is no crtdefs.h. I couldn't find a proper define that relates directly
to that issue, so attached is a somewhat cumbersome MINGW version check.
