For those that build FPC on a regular basis:

A reminder that the only supported way to compile everything ("make all") is
the latest release compiler. This is version 3.0.0.

Up till now, 2.6.4 could also be used as a starting compiler, but the check
has been made more stringent, and 2.6.4 is now no longer accepted as a
starting compiler.

If, for some reason, you still want to use 2.6.4, you will need to add 
to the make command line options.

So something like

make all PP=ppcx64-2.6.4 OVERRIDEVERSIONCHECK=1

can still be tried.

But be warned that the code may not even compile. It currently still does,
but the expectation is that more code will creep in that requires 3.0.0.
