> When I try to run make install or make zipinstall from my fpc svn repository directory, I get the errors copied&pasted below. It seems somehow the .svn dirs were copied, and this causes porblems later on with the readonly files that are in the .svn directory. (The permission denied error seems to be caused by the mentioned files being readonly.)

This is a known problem, and considered a non-fix because Peter is working
on a replacement system for the makefile system.  I workaround it by always
SVN exporting before building. 

I haven't tried, but a global "attrib -r /s" in the source dir before
installing might help also.
