I don't think there is a way to "do it by the books" in this case.  The
closest way I can think of is to use autoconf/automake.  Another way
would be to create one Makefile per target platform.

Once you get into the C-layer, you can use the defined variables
predefined by the compiler (#ifdef(linux), #ifdef(_WIN32), etc.)  But I
don't think those exist at Makefile level.
