Oh, I thought you were referring to the problem regarding the  
inability to find the crt* files, possibly due to failing to locate  
their directory (although I've just realised that while building FPC  
itself, the code in packages/fpmkunit/src/fpmkunit.pp is called  
directly by fpmake since the global configuration file is ignored in  
that case, so that shouldn't matter).

Anyway, you're right, the startup code for Linux/x86-64 does not pass  
the libc init/fini routines and hence is broken. And that's indeed not  
something to still change right before the release.
