How do you built system level dependent code across several distros

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Using Bamboo

I am working on a software project that utilized many system level libraries..  I was using Jenkins and had to modify the Jenkins server to change low level dependencies, adding, removing, or changing libraries based on what I needed built...    Now I'd like to build with more distro versions...   I am in the process of switching to Atlassian Tool Suite...   How do I handle these difference build environments, independent of the Bamboo's server os..?   Virtualboxes, Docker, etc...?

In both Jenkins and Bamboo - while you can configure/reconfgure the server host, the better approach is to define slaves/agents that are appropriately configured for the software you need to build.  Faced with this problem in a recent project, we chose to implement a set of docker containers for the Bamboo remote agents we required.  The build plans and deployment projects selected the appropriate agent thru Bamboo's capabilities/requirements mechanism.
