Alrighty! I might find myself hacking the build system to record more of
this kind of thing, too... We can try running lsb_release during the
build process and record its output if found, for a start. Then there's
your compiler-identifier. Then there's uname - via libc, not the command
line tool (what does that do on Windows?)
