Yes, not to mention stuff like:

#ifdef __i386__

  case sizeof(foo):

This is addressed here:

Note that this doesn't affect cross compilation: you just need to  
configure llvm-gcc as a proper cross compiler.  This just means that  
llvm won't magically make your C code portable for you.  Real portable  
languages don't suffer from these problems.
