The problem with doing this is that different distros (and versions of 
the same distro) bundle different versions of libraries and might put 
them in different locations, etc.

You might also not realize that you are missing libraries (since you 
didn't get a build warning) on some machines.

Also need to make sure all systems are the same architecture.
