To follow on from your quotes....

"The platform and library directives do not specify which platform or
library. If your goal is writing platform-independent code, you do not
need to know which platform a symbol is specific to; it is sufficient
that the symbol be marked as specific to some platform to let you know
it may cause problems for your goal of portability."

I guess with the above description IFDEF's will most likely be the
better option in real-world code.
