Both Solaris and AIX have been known to work.

Actually, you can now run the regression tests simply by typing "make
check" in the top-level directory; there's not need to move into the
source tree anymore.  We're probably not going to add the GNU make
detection everywhere, since it's more of a gimmick than a real feature.

Sure.  Perhaps you could check first if the result you got matches any of
the other geometry output files.
