'make install' doesn't compile anything, it just copies the already
compiled unit and executables in the correct location.

My own FPC usage:
I never install FPC or Lazarus in /usr, I rather install them into my
$HOME/devel/ directory. I always have write access there, and if I
upgrade my Linux (normally via a brand new install), my /home
partition is untouched by the reinstall, and all my development tools
and code are instantly available and working. My ~/.fpc.cfg is also
setup to handle multiple FPC versions and multiple targets for each
version, and I normally have 3 FPC versions installed: latest released
(2.6.0), the latest fixes branch (2.6.1) and trunk (2.7.1)

For example, here is my build script for Trunk 64-bit.



make clean
make install INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/graemeg/devel/fpc-2.7.1/x86_64-linux/


I have similar scripts for Trunk 32-bit, Fixes (32/64 bit) and Fixes
x-compiler to 32-bit Windows.
