[fpc-devel] Free Pascal problem

My old Code Warrior pascal is no longer compatible with MAC OS 10.5 :- 
(. I have installed free pascal, but it failed :-(.

Here is the code:

program test (input, output);

writeln('Note that for the time being, this will have to be compiled  
using free pascal');

Here is the output:

Free Pascal Compiler version 2.2.1 [2007/10/30] for i386
Copyright (c) 1993-2007 by Florian Klaempfl
Target OS: Darwin for i386
Compiling HelloWorld.p
Assembling test

Error: Error while linking
Fatal: There were 1 errors compiling module, stopping
Fatal: Compilation aborted
Error: /usr/local/bin/ppc386 returned an error exitcode (normal if you  
did not specify a source file to be compiled)

What did I do wrong? I suspect that it is something trivial.

No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If  
looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for  
we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
