[fpc-devel] Bringing back fpc 2.3.1 to BeOS

After a long period of inactivity, i finally took the time to update the
BeOS port of fpc. I have successfully compiled the latest trunk
(revision 7420) under BeOS using a new libc based RTL (1.0.* versions
were based on system calls).
The patch i propose to achieve this is in two parts :
- the first part is a zip file containing all files in the ../rtl/beos
directory. As there is a lot of change in this directory, i think it
does not make sense to produce a diff file. This file is available at
- the second part is a diff file of all other changes made to compile
fpc under BeOS (based on revision 7420). This file is available at
http://olivier.coursiere.free.fr/diff/beos.diff. Most of those changes
are related to missing system functions under BeOS (it is only an
"almost" POSIX system).
A lot of feature are not tested or even not implemented (like threading
for example). But at least, it should be enough to do a "make zipinstall".
All those files may still need a lot of work before finding a path to
the source tree, so comments (especially about the second part as there
is changes in common source files) and improvements are welcome.
A binary version of the trunk (fpc 2.3.1, revision 7420) is available at
(compiled under BeOS R5 with BONE).
