Yes, I have both on my 64-bit Ubuntu 8.04.2 system at work.  It was
easier to setup that cross-compiling (at least it was for me), but
installing native FPC's in VirtualBox sessions still gave me the least
amount of trouble.

I don't think I have ever used 'fpc' command to compile something. I
always call the correct ppcXXX command directly. I don't actually know
what's the point of the 'fpc' executable
Directory layout is as follows:

  /opt/fpc-2.4.1/x86_64-linux/bin           <<-- ppcXXX symlink lives here

~/.fpc.cfg file uses the $fpcversion (because I have 2.5.1 installed
too) and the other macro various for CPU and Target.
32-bit binutils is specified in fpc.cfg too.
