I've built and run "make check" on the following platforms:

Ubuntu 13.04 x86-64
Fedora 20 x86-64
RHEL 6.5 x86-64
Solaris 10 sparc (32 and 64)
Solaris 11.1 x86-64
IRIX 6.5 mips GCC 3.4.6 (as the system CC won't compile C99 code)
AIX 7.1 xlc power (32 and 64)

The only problems I ran into were on AIX 7.1. I don't think they're serious, but here are the details if you're interested.

In 64-bit mode I had to set OBJECT_MODE=64 in the environment, as well as build with 'CC=xlc -q64'; otherwise the AR make actions wouldn't work when building the .a files. This is a bit of an annoyance to remember but is no big deal.

The Gnulib exclude tests failed due to a missing pthread library; I fixed this in gnulib commit a14d4c0c7c41c726497673825abd832d9cad74b9.

The Gnulib test test-fcntl-h.c won't compile because xlc's preprocessor supports only 32-bit arithmetic in #if, which means that expressions like "#if O_TTY_INIT" don't work correctly when O_TTY_INIT == 0x0000004000000000L, as it does on AIX. Sheesh. At this point I gave up trying to port gnulib tests to AIX. (The grep tests proper all passed or skipped.)
