Oh sure. In practice, _most_ failures are caused by accidental assumptions
of GNU/Linux behavior, and/or to missing functions that can be replaced in

In fact, it would be cleaner to re-implement posix_memalign() there, than
#if __android__ || __sun__

But w.r.t. Solaris, I am more concerned about the lack of supported audio
