#ifdef declspec

Of course, folks using installed compilers may run into trouble if they've
played with specs etc (eg., by defining declspec to be something else). I'll 
cook up an autoconf macro if the check above is not acceptable.

I believe so. I haven't much time to test it, but looking at the code, it
looks correct. Someone should rebuild X libs, especially, xterm to see if
it works (xterm is a pathological case of exposing bugs ;-). Sergey has
probably already checked.
