I normally have access to all of those... But, because of some personal
circumstances, I don't currently have them. Normally I would have access
to Win2K, WinXP, Ubuntu, MacOSX, and OpenBSD but right now I have access
only to my regular Win2K desktop (I might try and see if I can get my
Ubuntu laptop working in my temporary work location -- the laptop works
just not sure the networking will). Recently I signed up for the SF
compile farm but that's a considerable pain to use as it looks like they
are heavily used machines and hence it make for unbearable testing and
slow typing :-(

I've been wishing for that for some time now also :-\ In general though
I think we need an automated compile/test submission system. As there is
also a need from the library testing side to submit code to test before
checking it into CVS and hence before impacting everyone.
