That is what I did assume.
But of course I needed to install FPC 2.4.0 to compile FPC from the svn.

I installed FPC 2.4.0 from the fpc-2.4.0-1.i386.rpm

I did not use the install_prefex option, as I in fact did not know what
I would want as install directory. I'll try your suggesting, hoping not
to destroy this even more.

Thanks for answering and sorry for accidentally sending this to the
wrong list.
