What about Lazarus/binary packages? I think libfprtl.so is required there.
If you use syscall version of this lib it's ok. If you use FPC_USE_LIBC 
however, it will cause linking problems on older distroes for example. I 
wonder how do you plan to fix this little problem.

I've updated the wiki page to clarify what parts of RTL I wanted to be 
affected etc.

There's also the "oldselect" problem for example. Might seem like a 
triviality but select() is used for many things (sleep, file IO etc.) 
which might mean FPC binaries would be much slower on 2.6 for example.
