Linux "The Linux Foundation has just released a beta of a new program, Linux Application Checker (AppChecker), that's going to make independent software vendors and other programmers start to love developing for Linux." This program checks your application against different versions of the Linux Standard Base (LSB), and against all the Linux distributions in the LSB Database. After the test is done it will present a report about the compatibility status of your application with the various distributions, and which external libraries and interfaces your application uses.

Or even worse, some projects not even not mention the dependencies in the documentation, they don't even check them in the configure script, so the compilation will fail with some missing headers.
