We also have at least msdos and Atari ST in dmake/

I'm new to the project, so I don't know if there is anything official either,
but my guess on the CPU architectures LO runs and may run on in a near future
would be:

- i386 / amd64
- power / powerppc
- sparc / sparc64
- arm
- mips
- alpha

Everything else is questionnable.

Once I'm done with the DragonFLy porting, I plan to remove all traces of
OSF1 / DECUNIX and 386BSD (which has been dead since 1993 or so)
