Without that change the conditional compilation expression will evaluate to false, so the latter will be compiled.  This compile will fail due to a missing header and function.

#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/time.h>
#include <sys/resource.h>

"sys/resource.h" is not included nor is the function "getrusage" with the standard distribution of MinGW64/msys.  Someone wrote an experimental version of this, but I have not tried to use it.
