FPC_HAS_FEATURE_* is mainly for things that can be enabled and  
disabled in the base RTL (such as IO, heap manager, ansistring support  
etc). Temporary defines for bootstrapping purposes can basically be  
any define starting with FPC_. Search for "settle" in compiler/ 
options.pas to see where these are defined.
