I trust more in libc than in FPC routines, libc is propably better adapted to 
the actual kernel. MSEgui tries to be Kylix3 compatible where the FPC 
routines are missing. Using the libc compiler switch is no option because 
users may depend on the default non libc RTL.
If you answer: "There is no difference" - many software features are OK until 
real usage only. ;-)

FPC libc does not support x84_64-linux.
