We don't have a really elaborate one, partly for reasons I explained in my
recent long reply to Joel.  We've been focused on our main development
platforms, which happen to be Debian-family Linuxes and recent FreeBSD,
and on POSIX/C99 compliance.

You should talk with Amar about this; he presently runs the VM farm.
