I've pushed the changes to the build scripts now.  I had to revise the part a bit, because you'd forgotten to propagate the extra
defines into hstore_plperl.  So that code is untested; please confirm
that HEAD works in your problem environment now.

I notice that is artificially injecting a define for
PLPERL_HAVE_UID_GID.  I strongly suspect that that was a hack meant
to work around the lack of this mechanism, and that we could now
get rid of it or clean it up.  But there's no evidence in the commit
log about the reason for it --- it seems to go back to the original
addition of MSVC support.  Anybody remember?
