Can I suggest some additions?

1) Cray compiler:

The cray compiler defines _CRAYC to detect the compiler, _RELEASE for
the major release level, _RELEASE_MINOR for the minor release level and
_RELEASE_STRING the above as a string.


2) Cray platforms and IBM Blue Gene:

I can provide patches in 1-2 weeks if you prefer that.
