On most UNIX systems you need the 'native' compiler to build the
It _won't_ work otherwise. (There were people trying to use gcc on
SGI IRIX and IBM AIX.)
This is something we know for a long time, and I don't see how
So, if someone is to redo the compiler recognition make sure all the
work is not completely useless.
You can't use servers (the userland processes) on HP-UX, IBM AIX, and
SGI IRIX systems without having the kernel module loaded,
thus you won't gain anything by compiling the userland parts with
gcc. You still need the 'native' compilers.
The only platform where those checks really matter is maybe Linux.
Don't get me wrong, there is room for improvement in the automated
recognition magic there, but I don't think it's really worth the
effort on all platforms.
