                 why 2 ? 1 should be enough. See the codestyleguide.

Exactly, FYI: in NaN source tree terminology ODE should be treated as an
'extern'-al library. We compiled such a lib on all platforms and
'offered' the external interface together with the library itself in
lib/platform/ to the rest of the blender sources.

I'm not saying we should keep everything as it was (in case ppl 'read'
that from my statements ;-)

External code should be checked into CVS on the vendor branch only (for
easy updates) anyway.

Small and quick fixes like this ifdef thingie could then be 'followed'
on the head branch until the vendor accepts the patch.
