Hm, I think this is wrong. Actually most (compile time) stuff will be
portable between the different Linux versions. Eg we build all our SuSE
and Redhat pkg on a SuSE 6.2, which works perfect.

We had most problems with changing glibc's (eg when going SuSE 6.1->SuSE
6.2), maybe the libc could be reflected.

You have indeed different archs on NT, even without the cpu ! Eg
ix86-mingw32 and ix86-cygwin32 and ix86-uwin and ...
