Can you clarify what "Works correctly" means? Does it mean just building
or does it include building and running? For example, OpenJDK 8 probably
fails to build (or at least it used to fail to build) on most Linux
distributions that were using Make 4.0. A patch was needed to fix that,
but when that was fixed, OpenJDK 8 would build and run just fine. In
cases like this, is it better to say "works correctly" and/or "builds
with workarounds" or something else entirely?

How about adding a column named "last checked" or "last updated" to make
it obvious when building on that platform was last checked?
