I definitely don't think we should get into the game of trying to guess which flags are supported at runtime and only exposing those. It's not as simple as keeping a table of OS versions -- which would be hard enough to get right -- but on Linux you can have things like vendor backports of features to old versions, or a new kernel that happens to have had a particular feature configured out of it. (For example, AFAIK some major cloud providers still use kernels that have had IPv6 support removed entirely.)
