looking into the problem, could you please produce a patch that fixes
the issue and/or improves the existing header organization?

First we need to lay down some ground-rules for the Win-build. I suggest:

1. No local-headers should include other local-headers more than one level deep.

2. No local-headers should need to redefine things or define things twice (e.g.
  *win.h files with '#define HAVE_OPENSSL' in 4 places).

3. All system-headers should be included ahead of local ones. 

These rules look fine to me.
