Nothing helps. You have no choice when sending executables
to different platforms to recompile .. well maybe someone out there
has a machine binary format the works on OSX 32 and 64 bit,
Linux 32 and 64 bit, Windows 32 and 64 bit .. and various ARM
processors (not to mention GPUs which are the future of high 
performance parallel computation) .. but I haven't seen it.

However, there is merit in a "just copy the source files into
your include path and play" model.
