That's normal because parameters starting with "!" are supposed to be 
environment variables, just like parameters starting with "-" are 
supposed to be switches and not filenames. If you use e.g. (under 

set fpcparams="-va myfile.pas"

ppc386 !fpcparams

then the "!fpcparams" will be replaced with "-va myfile.pas". This is 
used when cross-compiling the compiler/rtl wetween win32 and go32v2, 
because otherwise the commandline gets cut of at 127 characters (and it 
can grow longer in that case).
