Yes, I do on the OpenCSW Solaris Build plattform (from time to time).
But environment there changes every now and then... when it fails, I'll 
consult Dagobert Michelsen <address@hidden>.

For now, let's just stick with GNU/Linux.

BTW, commit a647f4f0881615f3471d0a32796fc538959fad00 bloats the library here.
Lots of code from libgnu.a seems to be linked instead of libunistring. I am at 
~400k now instead of 180k before.
