No, I don't have any problem with version, with is currently distributed 
with FPC. But IMHO the latest version is usually better (fixed bugs, new 
features, etc.). Really, I was thinking about version 2.14 (not 2.1.4!) 
- as I know, It's the latest version of GNU utlis. But I think, that I 
got answer for this question:

"[..]FPC has slightly different needs than GCC, so the older version 
might be perfectly useable for FPC although it might be outdated for GCC."

I understand, that currently distributed version has everything, what 
FPC needs, and newer version won't change anything. Am I right?
