[fpc-devel] Building FPC on SPARC Solaris

Just a note to confirm that FPC 2.6.0 builds and installs from source on 
SPARC Solaris 10 and 8. I had to revert from 2.5.1 to 2.4.4 on one 
machine before it would compile, the other was still on 2.4.2.

I am definitely not complaining, but purely for information I note that 
the fp IDE isn't built (was OK with 2.4), and that all make operations 
require NOGDB=1 (etc.) even though this is only referenced by the fp 
build makefile. I've not investigated whether there are any code 
generation bugfixes that haven't got into 2.6, if anybody wants me to 
look in more detail please say.

I might be having problems getting Lazarus back up, but I'll discuss 
this elsewhere if necessary.

For the record, I've not got an x86-64 Solaris system here, and I've 
never been anywhere near Solaris on zSeries despite mentioning it 
recently :-)
