Allwinner A10 : Is XBMC ported to MALI-400MP ?

#ifdef's in C, when evaluated negatively, is handled by the pre-processor. (cpp) and every line of code inside the statement is removed completely before it is sent to the compiler.

Assuming you have nothing generated automatically based on build-number, or dates, the binary produced will be identical.

Having done this mistake myself, it is not so hard to image that it could happen.

This is not *my* opinion on Allwinner and this situation though, just commenting on the #ifdef in C


ps. "sense".
