And why do you think that build and target machine should have the same os
version and release? It's quite reasonable to build things on operating
system X version N and have it run on operating system Y version M.
Compiler running on Linux and producing binaries for Windows is a common
It's quite possible to have compiler run on Solaris N and target Solaris
However, that requires *specially configured* compiler. Among other things
will be need access to the header files and libraries of the target OS.
