I've looked at these two URLs, but not sure why you sent them to me...

Yes, people have long since stopped sending me updates :(  I have already 
considering removing that list on a couple of occasions for that reason.

Yes, by all means, please do send your build results to me or to the list, in a 
format that can be easily copied into the PLATFORMS file, and I'll update it 
before the next release.

Presence of any lines in PLATFORMS that refer to those are there purely by the 
strength that someone previously told me that they had successfully built that 
particular combination of Libtool release, compiler and host.

Ah, I see what you mean.  Apparently my PDFTex was not working when I updated 
the manual pages on the website, now fixed.  Thanks!
