No, you can also use 1.1 to build the compiler. I'm only recommending
using 1.0.x to build the compiler the generated code is more stable and it
is easier because the required (RTL) units for building the compiler are
not influenced by the development you are doing on the 1.1 compiler or
RTL. To get such a setup working for the commandline compiler can be done
by editing fpc.cfg:

#ifdef VER1_0

The IDE for 1.1 does not work at the moment.
