Don't know. That's why I asked it :)

Ah, but that doesn't explain why configure.in OSF*) in some cases, and OSF1)
in others:

        case $ac_sys_system in
        OSF1)   CC=cc


if test -z "$LDSHARED"
        case $ac_sys_system/$ac_sys_release in
        OSF*) LDSHARED="ld -shared -expect_unresolved \"*\"";;

I guess the OSF*) action is specific enough (most likely to lead to errors
on systems that call themselves, say, OSFORME) that we don't really have to
worry about it right now.
