Gotta love embedded developers...

Out of curiosity I downloaded the GPLed source code for the
firmware in my new Netgear WNR3500L router. The first thing
I see is the build instructions which start with:

      1. This package has been built successfully on Fedora Core 2.
         Compiling this package on platforms other than Fedora Core 2
         may have unexpected results.

Now there's someone who doesn't want their development platform
changing on them :-).

(This is the netgear firmware mind you, not dd-wrt, which is a
different kettle of fish...).
