Never heard of this one =-O

should I PP the compiler to be used to compile fpc ?

Right now, for compiling I do

make clean all FPC=/usr/local/bin/fpc


/usr/local/bin/fpc   is
Free Pascal Compiler version 2.7.1 [2012/07/16] for i386

Some time ago I used a dedicated (old) version of fpc to compile fpc, 
but after this did not work any more, I updated my script to use the 
most recent version I was able to compile.

Is this wrong ? Should I (like in former times) d/l a released version 
(2.6.0) and install it somewhere in a separate directory ?

Thanks a lot,
