Actually we keep a collection of old (!) header files around in the tree 
for reasons which escaped me. The header file for the current API is 
automatically generated when you build this part of the SDK.

It should be created as part of a normal build (but doesn't get packaged 
because the SDK packaging is done as part of a complex build setup since 
it contains files specific to Windows and other platforms).
