[fpc-pascal] FPC's broken cross-compiler directory structure?

I build FPC cross-compilers for Windows, Macintosh and (32 bit) Linux on a
Debian Wheezy 64 bit host.

There appears to be a bug in the build process that produces dodgy
*crosszipinstall
tarballs* for Windows.

This applies to FPC 2.6.0, 2.6.2 RC1 and 2.7.1 (today's SVN head). It's
completely broken in 2.7.1 so I'll ignore that.

Below is the *build script* and the (filtered) *directory layout* of each
tarball produced when building 2.6.2 RC 1.

*fpc-2.6.2rc1.x86_64-linux.tar.gz* is the native compiler. All the others
are all cross-compilers.

Both windows compilers have directory structures that are different and
seem to be wrong.

They do not appear to map where *fpc* expects to find *ppcross386* and *
ppcrossx64* compilers (i.e. *lib/fpc/2.6.2*) and instead they are located
in *bin/<arch>/*. Further, the tarball cannot simply be unpacked at the
installation root (e.g. /usr/local) to have everything put in the correct
place.

I can manually work around this problem but am I missing something?

Is this installation difference intentional?

Is there some additional option required when building cross compilers for
Windows?

Many thanks, Cheers, Bruce.**
