LynxOS is about to be removed (as in, in the next few days), unless i'm
misremembering (it's finals time for me, so it's possible).
I'm not sure Unicos still works.

Errr, you honestly think that people work on gcc on <insert weird
platform> in a native environment?
The important list is the list of primary and secondary supported
platforms, which tell you which platforms gcc releases are required and
expected to work on (respectively, where expected means "tested but
non-showstopper bugs won't hold up the release") before it is released.
AFAIK, APR is already compilable on these.
