What happens at this point is that you are mixing two different FPC  
installations. If you want to install in /usr instead of in /usr/ 
local, use "make install INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr"

If you want to update the symlink afterwards to also change the  
default compiler, change the symlink instead of the file it points to.
