Thanks, I'll try that.

I have also been playing with the 'fpmake' build system. I can build
and archive everything without issues in the fpcunit directory. I'm
going to try the 'install' command now, to see what it does. ;-)

Well, I can confirm that it works fine, because I have been using it
like that for over a year now. But I think the reason it works, is
because the 'make clean' line.  But for safety, I'll and the 'make
all' as well.

Ah, that would explain why it's not currently working on my side.
Thanks for your help.
