It works fine for me, but I can't tell which platforms rely on this file
from it's name.
All platform shared files should probably use string.h instead of memory.h

I'm okay with that as long as the memory.h problem above is fixed.

Do the platforms included in the binary release vary with each release?
Is there an indication as to which platform builds have been tested for each
Is there a list of platforms that are always guaranteed to be included
before a release is cut?
Maybe platforms shouldn't make it to the list of supported platforms unless
they are available with every release.
The releases should probably be less frequent, and a committment should be
made to the list of supported platforms that will always work.

Why can't the source tree be seperated between platforms with binaries for
all releases from those without?
