Update the list of supported and unsupported PLATFORMS for BIND 9.15

In general, this version of BIND will build and run on any POSIX-compliant
system with a C99-compliant C compiler, BSD-style sockets with
system with a C11-compliant C compiler, BSD-style sockets with
RFC-compliant IPv6 support, POSIX-compliant threads, and the OpenSSL
cryptography library. Atomic operations support from the compiler is
needed, either in the form of builtin operations, C11 atomics or the
Interlocked family of functions on Windows.
BIND 9.15 requires fairly recent version of libuv library to run (>= 1.x).
For some of the older systems listed below, you will have to install
updated libuv package from sources such as EPEL, PPA and other native
sources for updated packages. The other option is to install libuv from
sources.
ISC regularly tests BIND on many operating systems and architectures, but
lacks the resources to test all of them. Consequently, ISC is only able to
offer support on a "best effort" basis for some.

NetBSD 6 i386
The i386 build of NetBSD requires the libatomic library, available from
the gcc5-libs package. Because this library is in a non-standard path, its

### NetBSD 6 i386
The i386 build of NetBSD requires the `libatomic` library, available from
the `gcc5-libs` package. Because this library is in a non-standard path,
its location must be specified in the `configure` command line:
```
LDFLAGS="-L/usr/pkg/gcc5/i486--netbsdelf/lib/ -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/gcc5/i486--netbsdelf/lib/" ./configure
