AFAIK, the old UNIX Mathematica versions ran on OS like SunOS/Solaris,
ULTRIX, AIX, IRIX.

Newer OS'es like NetBSD boast compatibility with binaries from those platforms:
http://netbsd.org/Documentation/compat.html

What would happen if someone run Mathematica on one of those?

Of course, this would assume:

1. Someone still has a Sun/Alpha/SGI/NeXT... still working
2. Someone is running NetBSD on (1)
3. Someone still has Mathematica for those platforms
