I use sup on Ultrix, Solaris (ugh), and OSF/1, and compiled it myself
(from the NetBSD sources; they were all I could find).  It was easy on
all of the platforms except Solaris.  I've never compiled anything for
Linux, but assuming it is really as standard as people claim it is
there shouldn't be much problem compiling sup there.
