It's fine if you do cross compilation testing.

What I'd like to know though before applying the patch: are there
systems other than m68k and powerpc on which AmigaOS runs?  Do we
have to maintain backward compatibility to AmigaOS versions earlier
than the one that supports shared libraries?  And then, you remove
this comment:

Is this issue now fixed?
