[fpc-devel] Bringing back fpc 2.3.1 to BeOS

Hi all,

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).
