The viewers are different.  But I'm not sure (Zdenek, that saves me an
answer to your private mail to me) whether it's worth catering for at
the moment.  Once TeXLive supports OS/2 officially and a decision about
the necessary separate add-ons (POSIX-shell etc.) has been made, we can
always add that.  But at the moment, I suggest that the OS/2 users just
put the commands into texmf.cnf.
