My take:

The documentation uses a macro (see fpcdocs/fpc.sty)

\newcommand{\fpc}{Free Pascal\xspace}

The contraction freepascal is only for places where spaces are not desirable
(filenames, urls etc). I never saw much casing used in such usage, so I'd say
from your list the second is prefered for most usage, and the third for
urls/filenames by convention.
