No, FPC is entirely written in Pascal (just like gcc is written in C  
and not in assembler). The original bootstrap was with Turbo Pascal,  
but TP compatibility has been dropped a long time ago. It must be  
bootstrapped with itself now.

You can't, you have to cross-compile it with an existing version of  
FPC (the Win32 version is most logical in your case)
