There's one problem with this: that also overrides the default library  
search paths (the SEARCH_DIR statements in the default linker  
scripts). So things will break on Linux systems where not all  
libraries are in the default library directories defined in FPC (for  
i386: /lib, /usr/lib and /usr/X11R6/lib)
