That depends on how you define "working".

If it was a jab against Arch:
I just put a link to the Arch AUR for simplicity's sake, since open
watcom is available there and PKGBUILDs are easy to read (if anyone
would like to repeat the process on their pet distro).

If it was a question regarding portability:
The resulting binaries are statically linked (I do not think watcom even
can do dynamic linking on Linux), so if that was your question (wrt the
c-library), it should not be much of an issue to use the binaries on any
Linux distribution (x86 or x86_64).
The watcom compiler itself is also statically linked against its own
library, so installing it on any distribution should also not be an issue.
