There are four platforms where it is well know that they work:

FYI, I have it working on SCO/Xinuos UnixWare 7 Definitive, I am still working on a few issues. I have over 2,180 packages built. I do have a few things I need to figure out. I am fixing issues as my bulk build fails. I do have a README.UnixWare7, that I am having Xinuos review before I may submit it.

OpenServer 5 Definite sufferes from green thread issuse. OpenServer 6 will be the same as UnixWare 7 Definitive. I am waiting on the Release of a New Development(gcc-4.2.4) system for OpenServer 5 Definitve. It should be released this quarter.
