No need to guess or try-and-err.


Here (GNU Emacs 21.3) "M-x apropos-variable RET system RET" lists

Nothing about `system-type'. It is listed (among many other items) with
"M-x apropos RET system RET", though.

That's because the system-* Lisp variables are not user variables (aka
options): they can't be set with `M-x set-variable'.  To see all such
Lisp variables, use `C-h v system ?' instead.
