At least, there's a Posix uname() system call (man 3 uname), so it
should be present on most unixoid platforms, at least on those that
pretend to be posix conform. Maybe we would need some #ifdef to call
some alternative code or a fake stub on Win32 and other platforms, if
they do not provide uname().

I'm afraid we will get platform dependend code here, so I suggest that
we create a default #ifdef branch that simply returns "unknown" (and
maybe issues a compile-time warning) so we don't get any hard compiler
errors on unknown platforms.

Have a nice day,
