So they support now native development on MacOS X as well? Or is cross
compilation from win still the only way? Then this explains a lot: the
mainly used development setup works always the best by far.

Cross compilation *to* win from any targets works very well with FPC.
The problem are platforms like linux where linking is basically
impossible without having the libraries of the target system available.
