For example, APR doesn't, to my knowledge, work on QNX. That's just off
the top of my head, since AbiWord does work on QNX, and we'd need a port
to move to SVN.

For other examples, the GCC web page [1] lists such operating systems as
Unicos/Mk, or LynxOS, which I don't think APR has been ported to. Or
Unos (which I couldn't even find in google). Or, to be really evil,
people mention VMS occasionally on gcc lists. The port at least used to
work (I think).

Of course, the GCC project could decide that all of these platforms
could use gcc, but without native development on them with revision
control. I don't know how they would feel about that.
