If Mark meant also addition of constants for a new architecture + OS
combination(s), it's quite a bit of places already (I could find at least
the following: compiler/systems.inc, compiler/systems.pas,
compiler/utils/ppudump.pp, packages/fpmkunit/src/fpmkunit.pp and
utils/fpcm/fpcmmain.pp plus creation of the corresponding subdirectory in
the compiler directory; then there is also stuff like compiler/options.pas
where TOption.WriteHelpPages and other places are currently still missing
MIPS, compiler/msg/errore.msg, etc.).
