What do you mean by 'compile time'? sizeof(wchar_t) is compile time
    constant, but it isn't availibe for preprocessor conditionals.

I can't find one. However, C99 requires <wchar.h> and <stdint.h> to
    provide WCHAR_MIN and WCHAR_MAX. You didn't say which C library
    you were using, but it would be easy to check. They are not quite
    what you want, but maybe they are close enough.

The above macros are C99-specifc. :-( .
