Oh yes, I forgot: the other problem I've hit is that GNOME (and indeed
most open source libraries) doesn't natively support "build on newer, run
on older". I don't know if Solaris supports this either but Windows
definitely does, if you are targetting Windows 98 compiling against the
latest Platform SDK won't magically make you depend on Windows XP.

At the moment I hack around this by using old sets of headers. It's
annoying and inconvenient. What position does Sun take on this? Is the
ability to compile apps targetting earlier Solaris versions on the latest
a feature you guys need?
