Ok, we do have some non-Linux support with the BR2_GNU_BUILD_SUFFIX
stuff (see the toplevel Makefile). We could use the same logic in
qtopia.mk to get the correct -platform.

Don't worry too much about getting support for all obscure OSes
correct right away - Either those people will complain and/or send
patches or no one needs it.
