Hmm, maybe it's because I'm on one of the 'main' distributions (SuSE), but
I've having less and less of these problems. Even something complex like
Sybase installed fine from the RedHat-specific (according to their website)
RPMs. It seems the Linux Standard Base work is leading somewhere...
I think for Squeak, the biggest dependency is the C library version. The
solution is probably just to state "libc version X or higher" somewhere on the
downloads page, and check for it on VM initialization.
