IIKRC Solaris is a complete pain because you need to bootstrap a working 64bit 
compiler and then figure out the special flags the compiler needs.

CentOS on the other hand is really easy and should just work.  But I think the 
rather ancient version (5.4) comes with a crappy old version of gnutls (and 
openssl with security holes, though probably there are update available for 
that), so you would probably want to build/install the current release of 
gnutls from source.

I'm currently developing on CentOS-6.5-x86_64 and that's worked well (though I 
do server stuff without gui code).
