Yeah, those can all go.

Yeah, you got me there. No idea where C272 came from. I strongly suspect
it was set to indicate gcc 2.7.2.

I suppose we'll have to make such a list. All the Linux ports should
remain, as should the BSDbased ones, MacOSX, Windows, Solaris and AIX as
they work and are complete. The reality of what has a chance of working
is the contents of bridges/source/cpp_uno (where the bsd's now share the
"linux" bridges). OS/2 (eComStation) is the borderline one there, there
was some fairly recent activity in it, and a bridge exists so it might
be working, but its vcl dir is likely quickly falling behind.

HP-UX wouldn't work, neither would SINIX, nor the HP9000 and RM400 foo.
