AFAIK, we only depend on stuff where it's possible to have a backend on
non-linux platforms. As Lennart mentioned, it's the case with PA. As
Andre explains, it's also the case for DK. Are there cases where this is
not true?

Also, if I remember correctly, in the early hal days, there was only a
linux backend and people had to step up to provide other backends --
it's a similar situation today (I can understand it's probably annoying
for the people who have to write those backends, btw)
