The primary development target is linux/gcc-g++. However we certainly do 
want to maintain compatibiliy with solaris, windows/mingw, and native 
windows/VC++. As strk has mentioned, he's busy doing new work right now, 
and that will take priority over compatibility changes/improvements. 
Ideally we could get some people regularly testing on the various other 
platforms and submitting patches, etc. to keep everything compatible. 
Until we have these "platform champions", the other platforms will suffer :(
