You have to build/install an exported copy under Windows due to a bug  
in cp.exe there. First perform

C:\Developer\FPC> svn export . c:\Developer\FPCExport

Then build/install from c:\Developer\FPCExport

make is not an FPC utility, it is not built when building FPC. It's an  
external program that's used with FPC. That's why you have to copy  
those over if you want to start from scratch.
