MPW superficially running here. The PPC macos RTL doesn't compile out of 
the box, I'll dig in presently and start a new thread rather than 
extending this one indefinitely.

I'm putting notes as I go along in 
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Target_MacOS which appears to have 
been written in 2004/2005.

FPC for m68k targeting Linux currently doesn't build due to warnings:

Compiling paramgr.pas
paramgr.pas(297,17) Warning: unreachable code
paramgr.pas(343,21) Warning: unreachable code
paramgr.pas(578) Fatal: There were 2 errors compiling module, stopping
Fatal: Compilation aborted
make[1]: *** [ppc68k] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/fpc/fpc-trunk/compiler'
make: *** [m68k] Error 2

Appears OK if -Sew removed but I've not tried running the result.
