make all
make install INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/fpc_2.2.3

from the fcl-fpcunit directory.

There should be a "make all" in between the clean and install (install  
does indeed normally compile stuff that isn't compiled yet, but it's  
not tested nor guaranteed to work).

No, it only gets reinstalled (a few things do get recompiled due to  
hard-to-fix errors in the Makefiles, but most stuff is just copied  
without recompilation)
