i wasn't able to figure this out but i did make it a little further after i 
updated all the .O and .ppu files in the trunk/units/i386-win32/fcl-base 
directory... the next error was

=== snip ===
Start compiling package utils for target i386-win32.
        Compiling BuildUnit_utils.pp
        Compiling usubst.pp
        Compiling ptopu.pp

        Compiling rstconv.pp
The installer encountered the following error:

-Fuc:/freepascal/fpc/trunk/packages/fcl-json/units/i386-win32 -di386 -dRELEASE 
-viq rstconv.pp" failed with exit code 1. Console output:

Compiling rstconv.pp
Fatal: Can't find unit variants used by fpjson
Fatal: Compilation aborted
=== snip ===

so i gave up, renamed my existing trunk directory and pulled a completely new 
update from the repository... that compiled just fine...

i have no clue what the difference is between the old and new... if anyone has 
any idea where to possibly look, i'll give it a try... other than that, in a few 
weeks or months, i'll be killing off my old trunk directory...

maybe it is related to my having to revert back to an earlier revision a few 
weeks ago? i could easily have done that the wrong way... i would have thought 
that the next update, which compiled just fine, would have brought everything 
else in from that revision forward but :shrug:
