The easiest is to do a
sudo make install FPC=`pwd`/compiler/i386`
from the FPC directory after you've compiled a new FPC 2.3.1 version.
You can always re-execute the /Developer/FreePascalCompiler/
finish_fpc_iphone_install.command script should you wish to reinstall
the original compiler/units from the SDK.
The only side-effect of doing a "make install" is that the /usr/local/
bin/fpc binary will then default to FPC 2.3.1 instead of to your
currently installed "stable" release (/usr/local/bin/ppc386 will not
be changed though). If you want to prevent that, you can do this
before the "make install":
cp /usr/local/bin/fpc .
and this after:
sudo mv fpc /usr/local/bin

It's not Xcode-specific, but shell scripting. My scripts are not
easily adaptable to a non-installed FPC, because then the layout of
the unit directories is completely different (and I have to archive
all object files belonging to the units in a static library for
linking purposes, so it's not enough that the compiler can find the
