I don't believe platform matters with respect to byte compiled
files. However, 22 v 23 does. While emacs 23 can read elc files
generated by emacs22, it has to do conversions that can have
considerable impact on load time. this is mentioned in the NEWS file
with emacs 23 and advises that new elc files should be created using
emacs 23.
