In theory both. But I tested this only artificially.

What could go wrong is this:

1: build fpc (using fpmkunit)
2: svn update, without a clean before this, so the fpmkunit remains
3: build fpc (using .fpm)
4: a dependency changes
5: fpmake resolves using the old fpmkunit.

But even then, in step 5, fpmake will search for a .fpm file first.

I don't think that this is the case here. I have no idea what really
