Create a symlink from /usr/local/bin/ppc386 to /usr/local/lib/fpc/2.5.1/ppc386. "fpc" searches for a compiler in the same directory as where its own binary is located. "make install" does not create/overwrite such symlinks, because that changes your default compiler.

Install 32 bit compatibility libraries on your Linux distribution. If they are unavailable: tough luck, I guess (unless you setup an complete i386 cross-compilation environment on your system, but that's not FPC specific in any way and I can't help with that).
