I've managed to compile it (or the betas) on a variety of Unixes (CentOS 6.2, 
Ubuntu 11.10, FreeBSD 8.0, NetBSD 5, OpenBSD 4.5, Solaris 10 and 11, Debian 
Lenny on a big-endian host) and things seem to be in good shape.

Has anyone tested on MacOS X ?

The only regression I've found so far is in the Rasterlite driver ( fixed in 
http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/4413 ). It was hidden by another problem in 
the lastest libspatialite3.0.0 that was exhibited by the GDAL autotests. But I 
don't think it justifies another RC per se.

*Last minute* : I've just tested with CentOS 4.7 and CentOS 5.6 and I've found 
a compilation problem with the sqlite driver (and in the GML driver when 
sqlite3 support is available). Those 2 OS ship with sqlite 3.3.6, but we now 
use various methods that weren't yet available. This is now fixed in trunk and 
1.9 branch (see http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/4418 for details ). Not sure 
if it is worth a RC2.
