Well, I didn't think about this path (compiling FPC program to MS 
object file format and using the MS linker), although _in_theory_ 
this might be an option too by using one of external assemblers 
supported in FPC which would be capable of creating the required 
object format (e.g. NASM?) for MS linker (I'd expect even more 
problems there, though).

Glad to hear that you have succeeded.
