well some of the platforms have peculiarities at least for some
extensions. Typical problems occur with socket/networking libraries.

Probably the simple _rl_accel etc is and we should assume so until told
otherwise. That's certainly not true for pyRXP which needs socket libs
and is strange only on sunos5 & aix4. There I suppose I could change to
using the default unless I know of a bad case. As for linux2 we could
just see if nothing blows up.
