Thanks for the feedback (and the later verification that MSVC only 
documents __inline as supported).

Perl generally doesn't use gcc -ansi (except for dec_osf and irix) so 
that's not a big issue, but given that we'll need to support __inline for 
MSVC anyway, I will restructure the probe to make that easier to 
incorporate, and might as well test for it anyway.

Thanks for the feedback.
