That's incorrect, you never need an explicit "make cycle". Simply do  
the following in the top level FPC directory:

make distclean
svn up
make FPC=latest-release all -j ncpus FPMAKEOPT="-T ncpus"
make install

The top-level "make all" already includes a "make cycle" and will also  
compile packages and utils
