"Works for random stuff I tried it on" does not guarantee it doesn't throw
spurious errors or even produce broken programs in specific cases (which is
to say, most compilers have bugs, but you only run into them in certain
cases). Compilers get blacklisted for specific ports when they have been
found to be incapable of building that port properly.
