The problem here is that Windows uses a nasty preprocessor hack for
functions which have ASCII and Widechar variants. So there's a:

#define LoadString LoadStringA

in the headers, assuming this is a ASCII build.

So, #undef LoadString is one fix. But surely camel-case identifiers
like this are not otherwise found in the Lua sources?  Windows people
instinctively avoid them for the above reasons. Seems like a rename
would solve the problem cleanly.
