Nope. It only checks for:
($^O =~ /dec_osf|linux|unix|bsd|solaris|darwin/i)
at the points where it does system-dependent calls... for the moment.
Has bioperl an estimate of XX% of OSes where is mostly installed/used?

There is a Bio::Installer::Generic for the common calls, like ("tar xzf
package.tar.gz")... But very "simplistic" right now...
Still tweaking and adding some bits,
