#12 Same compiler pretty specific

There is very little OS specific about the compiler proper, the CPU is more important. I'd expect identical code on both linux/ia32 and FreeBSF-ia32. However, the file format the code is stored in may differ, but I believe both Linux and FreeBSD uses Elf.

Maybe they use different versions of GCC, or different flags. Otherwise, it may be a linker issue. Does FreeBSD use GNU binutils?
