Another way to be portable is to have per-system files
to set up some environment variables and then uniform
portable files that use them. You can do that same
thing *within* a file by writing conditionals or a
case on the result of uname. It's probably best to
segregate per-system stuff in a well-contained file
or section of a file in this way ...
