Well, we might consider changing that, if we find no compiler that
disobeys this rule; I don't *know* offhand of a counter example, to be

We'd just need to check all Fortran, C, C++, compilers, gcj, Portland,
IBM.  Besides the OSes you mentioned, all w32 are missing; since a msvc
update is pending, that one should work as well, also windres.  Also
a couple of rarer used ones, plus of course a bit older releases.
