So wait, the following code:

{$if sizeof(pointer)=8} Code1 {$elseif sizeof(pointer)=4} Code2 {$endif}

will evaluate Code1 for a FPC compiler that is itself compiled as a x86_64
(64bit) linux program but itself targets Win32 (32bit)? If so, this is
highly counterintuitive (and i don't see the usefulness of it).
