Indeed, given that GLib and GTK+ use inline all over the place — and
GLib requires support for static inline functions as part of the
toolchain requirements:


GLib has a bunch of macros to allow some sort of ABI compatibility
when using compilers that have different ideas about the inline
keyword, but that's just for legacy code.

Which version of MSVC are you using?
