Of course I do see that you mean I should read the Wike before asking
silly questions ;) .

But in fact I though of just compiling the RTL and not the compiler
(fpc) itself. I suppose using "rtl" (or similar) instead of "all" should
allow for this (I'll try to find this info in the docs or the Makefile

Moreover by

"make install INSTALL_PREFIX=~/debugrtl"

it should be possible to create a second dedicated copy of the library.

I'll try to find out how to do and use this....

Thanks again,
