I tried it in cygwin-1.7 (under Windows XP):

$ uname -s

$ latex -shell-escape ifplatform.dtx
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009)
  \write18 enabled.
! Missing $ inserted.

\unknownplatform ->CYGWIN_
l.157 ...cumentation was compiled on \platformname

Let me know if you need further information in order to debug this.
