For simple snapshot, fpc.zip plus proper libgdb from /contrib/libgdb/
(unpacked into libgdb/go32v2) are enough. fpcbuild.zip is only needed for
full release-like build. "make clean zipinstall" should do (optionally,
you can include "SNAPSHOT=1" as an additional parameter). There's one
important caveat though - you need to make sure that no Win32 tools are
found on PATH before their GO32v2 alternatives; this is especially
important for FPC itself and make.exe. Moreover, as a general requirement
for building 2.3.x, you need to start with a 2.2.x compiler (older
versions are not supported and will fail).
