> If I'm not mistaken, the preprocessor will throw a fit at: #define N 10 ;
There's nothing invalid about having a semicolon on a pre-processor line. A frequently seen technique, attempting to make code more readable, is to use something like:
 #define  FOREACH_NODE       for(int n=0 ; n < nnodes ; ++n)
Remember that the pre-processor is performing textual substitution, and doesn't need/attempt to check the validity of C syntax, and can be used as a general utility to modify any text (not just programs).
