[fpc-devel] multi version ppudump

The default install (e.g. make install and most installers) replaces the
ppudump utility, reducing its usefulness. For example when Lazarus
should support code navigation without sources it requires a working

When installing a second version of FPC via 'make install' (and most
installers) the ppc* binary is put into a versioned path (e.g. under
Linux /usr/local/lib/fpc/<fpcversion>/). This allows to easily switch
the compiler.
OTOH ppudump is installed in a non versioned path (e.g.
Linux /usr/local/bin), so installing another FPC version replaces
the ppudump binary.
I know it is possible to install it under a different path, but
most users simply use the default.
It would be nice if the default would install a multi version ppudump,
for example similar to fpc->ppc*.

Any ideas?
