Then *ppudump* must be hacked further, since the currently present 
workarounds (not using symconst, globtype, systems and other compiler 
units) turned out to be insufficient.

Perhaps e.g. the Globals unit has to be split into one general part, 
with no possible code generator dependencies, and one part with 
variables that may introduce such dependencies. But this IMO is 
fruitless work, when ppudump can be incorporated with almost no negative 
impact into the compiler itself.
