(where I interpret "cc" as being the proprietary compiler for the specific

- Does a host need to respect any system characteristics (e.g. patches),
or what are the special characteristics you want to know for the host?

- Any supplementary information you might want to give.

I'm willing to be a testbench, but I would like my tests to be useful, so
these details would be most welcome.
