All credit to the core developers who've generally made this project a 
success, and my apologies for bothering them over the years with what's 
admittedly a fairly obscure platform by now.

I think it's worth keeping alive if possible though, because its 
insistence on fairly strict alignment etc. is useful for showing up 
potential problems.

bug when invoking help https://mantis.freepascal.org/view.php?id=22696
