I am afraid I don't know what to look for. There are not many changes. The
main one is that for solaris and darwin, i386 is conditionally replaced
with x86_64. There is also some shuffling of cases, and adding platforms I
had never heard about. I'd say the unsafest part is the removal of a bit
of code that seemed to deal mostly with the a.out format on linux.
