[fpc-devel] Smarter way of generating ARMHF fpc trunk installation?

fpcup, an FPC/Lazarus build/installation/update program uses the
following steps on ARMHF Linux (e.g. raspbian, odroid):

1. Get FPC stable (2.6.2 currently) ARM bootstrap compiler binary
This compiler cannot directly build ARMHF FPC trunk.

2. Use the compiler to build a regular ARM fpc trunk compiler ("the
intermediate bootstrap" compiler... sorry, not that good at naming :) )

make "FPC=/home/odroid/development/fpcbootstrap/arm-linux-ppcarm"

3. Use the generated compiler to build regular ARMHF FPC+RTL etc, as
well as Lazarus.

Would there be a smarter/shorter way of doing this?
