Similarly with e.g. cygwin or mingw or various embedded toolchains (but not
Microsoft Visual Studio).

I have a small 10 line generator that generates batchfiles like below, that
can be called multiple times, and save the original path, allowing to
switch. This one is for FPC, but I have similar ones for cygwin etc. 

@echo off

Rem we save oldpath only once, so we can always revert to it.

if "%OLDPATH%" neq "" goto :nosave
PATH c:\pp32\bin\i386-win32;%PATH%
