Ahm, no. The fact that you don't have it installed doesn't relate at all to it 
working on those systems.

And to be honest you're making a really silly argument. To illustrate this:
> uname -a
Linux ppc64 2.6.16-gb2fd16b4-dirty #1 SMP Fri Mar 31 15:49:08 EST 2006 ppc64 
> cmake
bash: cmake: command not found
Does that mean we can't use cmake because it's not by default on my machine? 
What about Qt? It's on none of the platforms you listed by default as well, 
doesn't mean we can't use it, does it?
