No, you really can't claim any such thing because there are a bunch 
of system libraries involved on any platform on which Apache runs. 
Unless the OS and system libraries and processor architecture are the 
same, you can only claim that it will work on the exact same environment.

Any other environment may be incompatible in any number of ways.
