Only for the record:

I have two OS/2 machines running - used for developing portable C 
for example targetting Windows, Unix and IBM mainframes - and I would 
like to get
a version of FPC running there, producing executables for OS/2 and for the
virtual DOS boxes inside OS/2, too - if that is possible.

But I didn't find the time to do it, so far. On Win XP, everything runs 
but a cross-compile there with OS/2 target didn't work. Don't know what
I missed. Is it possible to build FPC on the OS/2 machines, directly?
How could I do that?

You could answer me offline, if you like.

Kind regards
