It depends. The issue usually arises because the include file chain
changes with every platform. However, a linux-compatible include file
chain could use LINUXplatform. Try not to read too much into the name.

In theory, yes. In practice, no. I doubt anyone is going to figure
out the possible combinations automatically and then re-port the
code to the various platforms to ensure that it works.
