Have you actually looked at the code ? It doesn't even read/write units.
Besides actual code, it is doomed to fail in principle:
"The purpose of LLVM-Pascal is to have a similar functionality with up to 4000 lines of code"
A stand-alone, cross-platform, object pascal compiler that produces a working binary
in less than 4000 lines of code ? Get real :)
Some things are by definition not simple.
