MSVC doesn't have these macros. It should not be too difficult to define
them according to
http://code.google.com/p/v8/source/browse/branches/bleeding_edge/src/platform-win32.cc
int isless(double x, double y) {
return isnan(x) || isnan(y) ? 0 : x < y;
}
int isgreater(double x, double y) {
return isnan(x) || isnan(y) ? 0 : x > y;
}
